LFS stores should read these articles.

The only true way is fallow/ QT fish for treatment.
Well, maybe many LFS's tell you to do this because it works. My personal experience (3 years since first and only outbreak) tells me it does.

This really isn't rocket science - it's more like marine biology.

Current tank info:

180 gallon AGA, 40 gallon custom sump, AquaC EV240 skimmer, PM calc reactor, 3x 250w DIY MH, PCI CL-650 Chiller, 2x Koralia 4's, 2x Koralia 2's
