If there are no fish in the tank the ick will die off since there will be no host for it to feed on. I cant remember how long it takes for it to die out though.

Okay thanks Cichlid-dude! I have two fish in there currently left but I will try and get them out to leave the tank fallow

8-12 weeks fallow (inverts are fine), I would do a minimum of 10 if you can.

Nothing new to report, still can't get the firefish out so I'm just going to keep him in. He's not showing any signs of ich/whatever the clown had. The bta got irritated by a nassarius snail and ended up detaching. I moved him to the front of the rock so he seems happy there! The Duncan is finally growing a new head too!! BigRed made a good point the other day that a sweet LPS tank can look just as good as an SPS tank so I'm picking up a trachy from RainbowReefCoral on Thursday!



Here's the nems new spot



And the new growth on the Duncan!

Thanks everyone for following and the help on my questions!

So general question, we have a vacation coming up the end of April and will be gone from a Thursday night until Tuesday morning. My fiancť is not thrilled about an ATO due to the fear of something going wrong and water flooding everywhere. Do you think it will be bad if I just leave it for the 4ish days and if the salinity seems to be a little whack when I get home to slowly bring it back to normal? Suggestions and tips please!!

Should be fine depending on how much evaporation your tank experiences.
In terms of ato fears, if you limit the amount of water for an ato to draw from what is there to be afraid of? My 55 had a gallon of evaporation during winter months, so I give it a gallon every day and it does the rest. I've done larger containers but gallon jugs are quite convenient.

I think you should be fine, I was with my nano.
May I ask where you are going?

Going to San Antonio for 4 days! Got family down there. I don't think too much evap will occur because the heat in the house won't be on nor will the ceiling fan. The tunze ato for nano tanks looks really nice though, but if you guys think an ATO isn't necessary then I won't waste the money on the nano and get one when I upgrade

So after my experiment, I concluded that while on vacation I'd lose what seems like an inch and a half of water and my salinity is at 1.025. So two part question: a) is that acceptable to leave and b) can I just top it off now with rodi and not dilute anything or screw up the salinity?
