So what is your plan now??
What is your stocking and filter for your 30?

Marine ich is WAY more brutal then freshwater ich.
I would look into a 10/20 g qt.
Whether real aquarium or rubber maid tub you need to separate the fish from everything else IMO.
Then in a BB(Bare Bottom) tank 'treatment' can be proper and effective.

Many reef aquarists here actually ignore marine ich (to an extent). I believe Gregcoyote and Mr. X are on that list.

With proper care given to stocking, proper tank maintenance, good diet, and a calm environment for your fish marine ich should never get out of control. I have ich in my reef and I've never see more than 1 or 2 spots at any given time in my tank. Yes, it's still there but it's being kept at bay by having healthy fish. Yes, there is a potential for it to get out of control and if any fish suddenly develops a bunch of spots than they need to be removed into QT for a short time.

I will say, that when I first started keeping saltwater fish and moved a little too fast with adding fish my clowns had a bad ich outbreak and I'm positive that a freshwater bath saved them. However, it went away as soon as I corrected my excessively high nitrate problem and has never been a problem since.

I've never treated either. A healthy and stable tank will take care of any issues over time.
