Unfortunately, snails are sensitive to it as well. The tank you have is now is only good for keeping fish. Any crabs, snails, shrimps, or other inverts you place in the tank will die.

I don't plan on keeping corrals as I have beginners experience in this hobby and i believe in keeping the oceans alive
If you would have put the fish in the QT and left the tank fishless for 8 weeks it would have been ich free. Inverts would have been fine. Ich is a fish only parasite and doesn't/can't live off inverts.

Ich is either in the tank or not. If a fish is ich free it will not get ich no matter how stressed it becomes. The parasite had to be introduced into the system. A living creature (parasite or not) can't appear from nowhere.
