With ick in the tank it will need to co fallow (fishless) 72 days.

I removed all corals and inverts for and treated my display with Hypo. It takes a lot of water changes to lower and than raise the salinity.
+2 at least 72 days... there are many accounts of Ich in fallow reef tanks lasting longer than 72 days

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 220g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs
