Ozone will only kill the ich parasites that enter the ozone reactor...and most are in the tank itself so it's not an effective treatment for ich.
There is alot involved in running ozone. You need an air dryer so the air going into the generator is dry, an ozone generator, an ozone reactor and an ORP controller which will control how often the ozone runs. Running too much ozone can kill the entire tank pretty fast.

Hey thanks for the reply but if I run it at the minimum would it not help, without over dosing.

And I know it has to run through the ozone to work but will It eventually not kill all the ich present and help when I introduce new fish to my tank.

I've lost about 9 fish since the outbreak and need something to help me in the future.
