The clown was moved to a separate tank when I noticed the ich. Would that make a difference?

Ich is always in a tank 24/7 from start till you tear down your tank. But your fish only get it if they're stressed.

It is not always active if your tank is empty now you should keep it free of fish for at least 4 weeks. Don't belive me? Get ick again

It's still in your tank after all that time and your fish will still get it if they're stressed. Just make sure your fish aren't stressed and you should be okay.

Ok thank you do much for the advice. I gotta now move my other fish to a different tank and ill let it run 4 weeks without fish. What about the lighting schedule? Does it matter since I still have some corals in there I guess keep it the same

If the fish in there are eating just keep a watch on them and leave them in. Just don't get anything else for a month or maybe a little longer. As Lin as the fish in the tank are eating they'll be fine.

Hmmm.... Try algae sheets? Sometimes they just need some ruff age.
