can ich be transmitted on a nem?


New member
will I need to QT an anemone for 12 weeks to avoid possibly introducing ich into my system? can ich be carried in on the nem?

thanks as always

THey can't get it, and generally they're shipped and kept apart from fish, who are the carriers.

You could just set aside some tank water in about 3 bowls, dip it in each in rapid succession, then put it in your tank: kind of like a hazmat shower cleanup.

Likely it won't have it, but if it's been washed off by that process it's even less likely.

Will that work for corals too? I just got a double Mushroom Leather from my LFS and it was sharing a system with fish. I have it in my QT now.
