Ummmmm That sounds like par for the course with introducing a new tang. What is a concern is that you are medicating and there is a cleaner in there. Generally all medications for ich contain copper. That will kill all your coarl and inverts I. E. shrimp. I have heard of mixed results with Ruby Reef's kick ich but for the most part medicating in the main tank is a no no. If you are using something with copper you have to get that shrimp and all corals out of there ASAP. I really hope this works out for you.
