+1 for maintaiing the tank fishless for 6 - 8 weeks. The lifecyle of sw Ich is about 30 days. Hyposalinity treatment for surviving fish takes about 6 weeks. We add two weeks to that for safety reason to make sure the parasite is gone in both the fish and the display tank.
Remember, Nothing GOOD ever happens FAST is a sw tank!
Patience is the key!

The shrimp is good. Feed it lightly and that will keep your bacteria count up where it belongs. Now is the time to do all your research on the Hobby.

Happy Reefing,
