No...the longest recorded life of an ich parasite in a non-fish environment is 45 days, but thats extreme, usually 30 days is enough. If you have no fish in the tank, theres no need to treat the tank with chemicals. Without a host, the parasite will die.

Did you treat your tank with the rock in your tank?If so your rock isn't live rock any more.I've read that Ich meds kill live rock live sand and inverts.

some are suppose to be "reef safe", and not kill your LR or LS....but i wouldn't take the chance. just put them in a q-tank and use hyposalinity or copper.

ed is the man for this, he helped me out when i had a problem.
