So I have inverts in my old DT and I got a new DT but my older DT got ich and I heard that the cyst can stay on their shells. So my old DT has been fishless for about 2 weeks and so are the cyst still on my inverts and should I wait the 6-8 weeks or is their a way to kill the cyst on my inverts faster?

Play it safe and wait . Nothing good happens fast in this hobby. If you rush things you may end up fighting a losing battle. Which will discourage you to the point that you will leave the hobby. Take your time and use this waiting period as an opportunity to do research and learn.

45 days at 81 degrees minimum.

Two weeks is not enough and it can come over on the inverts.
