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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

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

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
