Safe to reintroduce?
 
so i had a ich outbreak like two-three weeks ago and treated the main tank and moved the ich coverd fish to a Q tank. lost a catfish in the Q tank but the other fish Acei has been cleared up for about a week now and isnt shoiwing any signs of stress or ich, when can i bring her back into the main tank? its a bare bottom tank and was treated at full strength for 4 days after the catfish died. during the full strength treatment she had no spots and the tank is totally bare cept filter and heater.

i would wait a solid month if you have no need for the hospital tank, better safe than sorry..............but its your tank, do as you like......

Mitch, as you may remember, we 2 been in the same boat, same time...when I was reading up on this left & right to figure out after everybody died when it would be safe for me to re-stock the now empty 55g anything & all I found said (for fish and tanks) to give it 10-14 days AFTER last signs of ick to be sure you do not re-introduce the bacteria to the other fish and infect them.
So if I was you and had any survivors....wait 1 more week, if the QT fishy still has no signs, move her back to the gang.
