The price we pay for years of experience is having to relearn what we thought we knew as better info becomes available.
Quite true (about showing my age!) I have probably a bad habit of skipping over articles on things I think I know about from past reading. One never stops learning. I don't recall the air bit, but I know the article made sense at the time because an outbreak of ick months after anything new has gone into the tank does make one wonder how it got there. B.

Ich is a protozoan and cannot transfer around airborne except by infected equipments and livestocks.
