If you have perfect water params the tang will shake it off.

Not much you can do. Good water parameters will help but the ich is in your tank until you can do a fallow period.

I don't think id be able to do a fallow period because all of the rock there is no way id be able to catch everything without tearing down my whole tank. It only seems to hit my hippos tangs in my tank. this is my second one the first one died from it but he was doing perfect for months and one day just boom. went months before i got a new one and he gets it right away. Would the cleaner shrimp help any? I think thats my only option for now.

Cleaner shrimp dont help at all for ich. ich burrows into the flesh so would have to be dug out.

It used to be recommended, but realistically it's not done anymore because it's not effective.

Living with ich is possible don't believe the hype. Keep your water on point and there's no worry as it won't get out of hand.

It depends, since you've already lost a fish to ich it leads me to believe that there are issues with your stocking. You have to keep nitrates as close to 0 as possible and rehome any aggressive trouble fish.

Thats true, water parameters will help. But a stress free environment is just as important.
