How long can Ick live with no fish?

Good point, @Saltinthedesert. I am not sure how long beneficial bacteria can live without ammonia. But if you are concerned about that you can add ammonia to the tank every day to maintain, and maybe strengthen, the bacteria. You would need to test periodically to make sure the bacteria is converting the ammonia and nitrite.
