What do you think?
Already advised against this. That QT will cycle. How is it that your friend thinks it won't? Once the fish is in there, isn't the bacteria going to start growing from its waste? Won't Ammonia start to bloom? If the ICH doesn't kill the fish at this point, having them in an uncycled tank will. But, this is JMO.
