I would seperate the two fish. and from your profile i see you have a 75 gallon tank. That's the min size you can have for a yellow tang. I had a 75 and a yellow tang, and he was still aggressive and very skittish. I finaly decided returning him was the best option.

there are articals in the disease forum. on what to do and how to treat ich. tou can use a product called coppersafe, just follow the instructions. you should probly also have a copper test kit to make sure you have the correct concentration of copper. as you said, all this should be done in your QT.

Seachem's Cupramine has shown to be one of the more effective and least stressful copper meds available. Just be sure to use the corresponding "chelated copper" test made by the same manufacturer. Coppersafe by Mardel labs is aalso a good brand but again, ensure you get the proper test to go with it.
