Other than that, My tank is a true fish-only... haven't even added a cleaner shrimp yet, so treatment for the little guys should be straight forward if the nasty bug persists...
Freshwater dip can rupture the cysts on the fish however usually ich still remains in the tank in the previous stage either free swimming or waiting to hatch. So freshwater dip at this point is not preventing much.
Also if you have live rock or a sand bed treating with copper or meds is a bad idea. Hypo-salinity treatment would be your best bet.
Let us know what it looks like when ya get home, might just be specks of sand after all, im sure everyone here has had one of those scares. Snap a pic if you can get one also.
