I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the ich most likely will not just go away. :-( The only tried and true way to remove it is to take out the fish and treat them in a QT and let your tank sit empty for 6-8 weeks. The ich may drop off the fish but then its busy multiplying in and on the sand just waiting for your fish to swim by.

Not sure if I linked this already but it shows the life stages of ich so you can see what it's really doing

Marine Ich or White Spot Disease

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok, so what equipment is really needed for a QT tank? Do you have any filters you reccomend? How should I got about cycling it?

Another thing it though of was, could I just take the coral out and put it in my 55g? Then treat the DT? Or would that kill my LR? Thanks.

I will be at Petco in a few minutes, I will probably look at the fish, and buy some new reading material . Don't worry I am not buying any fish, just looking.
