I don't think ur tank has cycled. Usually takes 4-6 weeks... Then u will add fish in another 2 weeks after that. They probably got ich because of stress. As long as the top of ur water is rippling, u have oxygen in the tank. Plus a 40g is way to small for any tang.

Saltwater don't need air pumps. Just circulation from power heads...

Only 2 ways to treat ich. Hypo salinity and copper. If u use copper, u can never have corals or inverts. With hypo salinity, u take it down to 1.009. Either way, u need to leave ur tank empty for 8 weeks.
