Velvet needs a fish host in order to live so if you remove all of your fish from your main tank and let it go fallow (no fish) for 76 days the parasites will all die. You don’t have to treat your main tank or do anything with the sand or rocks

what about my Snail, corals and anemones? I assume i need to continue running the pump and filter as well as putting food to maintain the system?
