Exclamation Help Please - firefish goby has ich

I bought a Firefish Goby yesterday and I've noticed it has ich. I don't have anywhere else to put it so I have one of two options:
1) Put a large plastic container in the tank and put the FF Goby in it and dose ich medication. (It has a sticker on the outside of the container though so I'm uncertain about that. Otherwise I like the plan.)
2) Dose the whole tank and hope the corals aren't affected to badly. I've used it before as a last resort and the corals weren't knocked about to bad but I don't wanna do it again.
So please guide me in my time of need. Thanks guys.

Ich can really only be killed by hyposalinity or copper-based treatments, and some other medication that I can't remember the name of right now. (Innovator will remember the name!) Anything that kills ich will kill inverts. Sooo... I can't say that either 1 or 2 is really going to do the job. Not the advice you were looking for, but that's my 2 cents worth.

Here's my choice, but it involves a separate quarantine tank:

I am in a similar situation. I have a neon goby and a shark nose goby with ich. I have no real qt. I had a goby before that had ich when I first brought him home. He got over it about two months later. I hate to treat the tank so I am going to wait a little longer and hope he gets over it.
