Inverts won't "host" ich but the free swiming stage can be in the water in the bag they arrive in or snail shells (really any hard surface.)Same with corals, except the cysts are on rock or frag plugs, not the corals themselves.
I think someone needs to come up with an actual cure that's reef safe lol

QT fish - I can do. But is it really even realistic to QT inverts, snails, ect? I don't think so but that's by .02 cents
