If there is ich in the tank, you need to run the tank fallow for 6-8 weeks for the life cycle of ich to run its course. Did you acclimate your fish to the tank? What were they? Current parameters? Fish don't just get ich and die off, it is always stress related at some point in their life.

Ich doesn't live in the rocks and corals, it needs a fish host to survive.
