What a Pita...
Just keep the 210 fishless for at least 6 weeks. With no host for the parasites to infest it will not be able to complete it's life cycle and they will die.;D
Here is another link that should be of some help.
My display is currently fishless as well,,,,(ich) and the pod population is just MAD exploding!!!!!! so....that's an up side...(sorry about all your fish tho,that is a bummer) Sorry for the one liner before....I was running around like crazy;D
What? No No No... You are not a PITA! You are great! Thanks for the 1 liner.
Keeping the tank empty for 6 weeks is the PITA.
I JUST READ THE GREATES THING! ok here the deal with ich, they r attracted to light so...if u leave the lights off for a few days then they will have a hard time finding a host...infact i believe that if they dont find a host within 24 hours they die...so leave ur lights off for like 2 days and if everyone goes good ull be ich free ...again im gona research this so plz dont flame me
Hey, it can't hurt...
But as far as the 210 goes, the only thing moving are a mess of blue leg hermets. Hmmm, can they harbor ich for 6 weeks?
I don't believe that your hermits will be affected by the parasites, To the best of my knowledge they will only infest the fish population. And with no host fish they will die. John
I didn't think so, but I'm sure some Turbos brought it in. I've now coppered the blink out of the 210 so they are no longer a problem. At least the crabs have some new homes.
NOOOOOOOOOOOO you put copper in with your LR, Sand, and inverts?
