There's nothing you can put in your display tank that would work because it effects the entire tank. Your best bet is to let your tank go fishless for the 6 to 8 weeks and in that time establish your hospital tank. once its established you can put fish in there to quarentine and you'll feel like you have fish again until your main tank is ready.

Yep, just leave your tank empty for a while. I would go with 8 weeks just to be safe . The thing with ich is that it can be in a system, but the fish could possibly not get it until a random time or when their immune system is lowered. That is why I would recommend QTing all new arrivals from LFS' (because mose of the systems at LFS' have ich).

Good luck!

And one more ? Is there any supplements that I should put in the tank to help it out or no.

How bad is the ich? Do you plan on adding any other fish to the tank? When you keep your tank fishless make sure you at least feed the tank once a week to keep the bacteria fed. I kept a tank fishless for 6 months until I got around to figuring out what kind of fish I wanted. Feeding garlic helps with ich and other parasites.
