Batteling ICH!!

Ive Been battling ICH for two weeks now, I started 2 quarantine tanks a 10gal and a 20 week and a half ago, I did't think I had time to set up the biological filter part, so I had a powerhead and a NEW Whisper type filter. Well I've been doing water changes daily!!! 50% in the 10gal and 25% in the 20. I've been trying to keep the ammonia down, but I tested the Nitrites and they are through the roof!!! So all day I've been acclimating the fish to go back in the main tank.. I Have the whisper building bio in my sump and I also purchased a refractometer for HYPO treatment. SO, My plan is....I'm going to start all over!!! I hope it works!! I didn't think it was going to work with them being in an ACID BATH

Fish: Coral Beauty
Powder Blue Tang
Yellow Tang
2 Oscillarus Clowns

What do you guys think??????????????
