    Hi all,

    My question is my tank had ich all fish died. It is now empty and being treated with high heat and food.
    I have heard two different answers on how long to leave the tank 1 or two weeks? I would think if there were fish in the tank I would agree with the two weeks but with no fish to latch onto I would think 1 week is fine. Does anyone know for sure or have actually done this? Thanks I appreciate all the help this forum has given me.

    I did the meds & heat in my tank with the fish and had no issues with it ever coming back. (knock on wood). Some say leave it a couple weeks. There life cycle is 7days and with out a host (fish) they should die in like 1 1/2 weeks? Mine were fine though with the fish.
