I've heard that rid ich specifically can kill off the beneficial bacteria in your filter, but I'm not sure about the brand you have there. I only ever treat ich with aquarium salt, water changes, and raised temperatures.

Is this tank cycled? What are the water parameters?

So no its not cycled? Do you have a test kit? I'd say you should probably do a water change right now to be safe.

Try looking online, like on Amazon. It's absolutely imperative to have your own liquid test kit and to cycle your tank. Especially since you have fish in there already, because they will die from ammonia/nitrite if you don't keep them down. Which is hard to do without a test kit.
