Ich Seem To Have Disappeared? Help

    I have two Black Moors that had an outbreak of Ich a couple of days ago and are currently in quarantine, but they seem to have completely disappeared?

    They ate plenty of food and weren't scratching against anything in the tank the night before, but they had white spots on their body and fins the next morning! I put them in a separate tank with a very small pinch of salt until I can get the Ich medicine, but when I checked on them this morning, there seem to be no signs of Ich at all!

    I've heard that fish can fight off Ich on their own, but I can't tell if this is the case or if they simply fell to the bottom of the tank. I don't want to add any medicine if they don't need it anymore.

    Should I still treat them with Ich medicine (half dose?) or can I put them back into their tank and simply throw out the quarantine water?

    the ich life cycle can last 2-3 weeks depending on water temp.
