Flame Angel dying! Please Help!

Hi, I have recently bought a dwarf flame angel for my 60 gallon tank. The fish was acclimated fine and has been doing well until this morning, when I found him laying on his side. Now he is swimming around rapidly, and he has white spots. He won't eat the garlic soaked food I've been feeding him, and I turned the temprature up. Nitrates, Nitrites, and Ammonia are all close to 0, and specgrav is 1.024. I don't have a QT, so is there any way I can cure him of his ich? I have another tank with a cleaner shrimp in it, so should I try moving him over? BTW, I have 2 fire fish homies doing fine, and some inverts, so I can't use copper. Please help!
thanks

Here's your ich link
Marine Ich - Myths and Facts | Reef Sanctuary

It will tell you why the shrimp won't work...
3 ways to kill ich.

Flames are on my "never again" list.
Sorry yours is having issues.

When you say close to zero ,that's for nitrAtes?
Your ammonia and nitrItes are zero right?

How long has tank been set up?

Sometimes non stressed fish can be resistant to ich ,but I would never count on it...
Make sure the flame does die unnoticed ans any other fish pick on him.
That is a sure fire way to spread infection.
Sorry about your angel.

Idk what happened to the angel but it's possible it was collected via cyanide. Really sorry about the fish . Maybe ask the store about the wholesaler they're getting the fish from.

I try to only buy from places that get the fish from quality marine or reputable online sources that qt. Sometimes it's out of your power.
