ich, healthy fish, fallow tank question

Please shed some light here.

If ich parasite can not survive in fallow tank, how it survives in that tank where all fish seems totally healthy ?

I have juvenile sixline in 300 gallon tank that I can not catch. She seems completely healthy for several months already. I had another wrasse along that showed no signs of infection too, but that one somehow took offered bait. So where ich is hiding ? Or it is not ?

ich starts in the gills. If the fish have immunity to ich they still have ich but don't show signs of it thus allowing the lifecycle to continue

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 200g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40, and a Tunze 6305. Several QTs
