I would pass on the fresh water bath?
I would lose the rid ich and go copper or just keep at the hypo and try the transfer method also if possible?
I like rid ich but marine ich is not freshwater ich.
Only 3 ways to kill ich on fish;
Marine Ich - Myths and Facts | Reef Sanctuary

The tank can rid the ich by running fallow for atleast 30 days...(timing will depend on many variables).

The butterfly won't last long not eating IMO.

Thought CB was Copper Banded? MY bad..
I know what kordon rid ich is.
Copper,hypo,or transfer.
Only 3 ways to kill ich.
No med is safe to use with hypo...
Hypo is best because it works alone and kills only ich among disease.
I would pull the rid ich and go straight hypo (no med) .
Consider copper,but I don't believe you should be mixing anything with hypo?
You need to choose a treatment and use it properly.
Have you read the link above?
It is good info.

you never want to treat in the display as everything can and will leach into the rocks ,
this can cause you problems keeping coral along with many inverts , and render your tank a fowler only , all chemicals are considered poison in a reef and can cause more damage than you really want to know about
