Oodinium without Host

Hello PlantedTank.NET!

I am interested in making a planted tank and populating it with small fishes like Cardinal Tetra that I have already quarantined.
But before I do that, I would like to make sure the planted tank is free of parasites (the display tank).

I was wondering if the Oodinium/ Velvet parasite would be starved to death by setting the planted aquarium temperature to 28C or 82F and leaving it without fishes for 2 weeks?

During this time, i will continue with medium lighting, 25-30ppm of CO2 and EI fertilization.

can anyone share with me their experiences?
