How long does it last if theres no fish to be on?
I had a couple tetras and bought a few more neons and in a couple days all but one had died and my friend that works at the place goes oh ya we had an ick in a bunch of tanks then I check mine and the only survivor has it. Before I could get to the store the next day it was dead.
So now Ive got a tank with just a few ghost shrimp and a bunch of snails and I read that ghost shrimp arent affected by it and snails can be but arent great hosts. So am I right in assuming it will die off on its own with no fish hosts?
