Question about fish going into DT
Ok so I made a post a while back about losing my fish to ick. I have let my 180g sit for roughly 10 weeks fish free. Is that long enough? Also, I have a biocube with a midnight lightning pair along with a pair of banghaii's. Since they have been in the biocube for a year or so with no signs of any problems, would that be like a qtine which I could now put in my DT? TIA!

I would run them through a TTM. Sincere your already went through 10 weeks do you really want to skip on a process and get it again?

True. Isn't TTM really stressful on Fish? Cuprimine or low salinity better or no? Also for how long?

Ttm is not stressful

I agree that TTM is not stressful at all. IMO, cooper and hypo is more dangerous than TTM. Off a little it can be toxic or not effective.

So how long would I qtine for?

If you're doing TTM then just the normal routine would suffice, if you choose another method then the same applies to whatever method you're using. Since you have done 10 weeks of fallow, by the time your treatment is done the ich should definitely be out of the DT.
