Hello all, Yesterday I got in a heated arguement with a LFS employee from a new mount pleasant store here in SC. We've agreed on many remedies regerding fishcare,tank maintenance, etc. Hell he's a knowledgeable guy, but yesterday he tried to tell that marine ich can go dormant & wait for a host longer than 2 or even 3 months!! He said that he had seen it 1st hand in his tank after letting it run fallow for 4 months. I asked him if he added corals,water from another tank or anything else during the coarse of this fallow period. He said "NO"...I asked if the new fish had been properly quarantined (6-8 weeks)...he said yes. Everything that I read about ich lead me to the conclusion that MI is a parasite THAT NEEDS A F%#$@&* HOST. Is there anyone that can come this guys defense. Is some strain of "super ich" that I'm unaware of. Now that i think of it, that's 2 stores that have told me the same thing about MI!! Am I missing something here?
