    No corals and inverts need a salinity of 1.024-1.026, it would end up killing them.

    Yep pretty much. Any medications sold to fight Ich that say "reef safe" don't really affect the parasite.

    I had ich show up on my dog face puffer when I first got him. I soaked his food in selcon vitamins and also some garlic. Fed him good and he got rid of it after about a week or so. I havent seen any signs of ich in about 8 months.

    Just remember the ich is still present although you may not see visible signs on your fish.
