Listen,if you only have fish and no coral or inverts you have the option of treating the hole tank for ich.2options. 1. You can medicate the hole tank and be fine but put stress on the fish more. 2. You can crank the heat. To 86 or so and leave it like that for a few months and rid ich like that with very less stress compaired to meds.either way you are gonna stress them out cause they are all xexposed now.don't add anymore fish or anything besides food and top offs of water.Gravel cleaning is highly recomended once a week on both options.

If you don't have any corals in the tank, hypo the DT. But, if you do, then yes, you pull them all into QT for 6 weeks.

Yeah I have a handful of small corals plus crabs etc so display treatment is out. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the pointers. Does this stuff ever go away? Say my fish never coffee down with it does that mean its gone?

Well since you have coral.crank the heat.heat prevents ich from breeding and will eventually kill it off After a few months.

Life span is 6 weeks. If it does not have a host it dies out.

What would be a safe temp to crank it to for some soft corals, macro algae, copepods, emerald crab, hermits and an assortment of snails? Will they all survive at a temp of 86?

Nope, don't move that temp up at all with all those things in there.
