I am new to the realm of keeping a slatwater tank (new to keeping a tank all together) I have a 2 month old standard 55 gal tank with live rock and live sand. My water has been perfect but I keep ending up with dead fish. I have come to the conclusion that I have an ich problem in my tank, or so I believe. I just killed a tomato clown and 5 blue chromis ??? within 3 days of purchase,bringing a total of $300 in fish gone in like 2 months. Its starting to get frustratin to say the least Now I know I have been doing it wrong without a quarantine tank, so I plan on setting one up before purchasing more fish. My real question is how long does it take for the Itch in my tank to cycle so that I am safe to introduce fish? I have read about cranking up the temp in the tank to speed up the process, but will that affect my live rock, snails, and hermit crabs, as they are the only living organisms I have left. Please help.
