+1 Dmorty217 and Sat , you may not see ick on the fish but if it's present in the tank your fish are infected. Fish can build an immunity to ick just as we build immunity to common ailments however you have to remember ick requires a host to survive and complete its life cycle so just because you don't see it on the fish the fish is still being infected in smaller numbers the ick is most likely infecting the gills. Proper quarantine procedures will eliminate this. One word of caution to those that don't qt everything that enters there tank, velvet looks a lot like ick and it is very deadly
