only way to rid the tank of ick is to leave fallow 6/8 weeks
inverts should be fine as they wont contract it
treating the fish you have 2 options hyper salinity or with copper
this is every one of our worst nightmares
most of us have been there one time or another so dont feel you are alone
wish you good luck and all your live stock recovers
edit:
be sure it's not just sand stuck on him
you dont want to put him in a ordeal if he dont need it
but if it is ick start treatment asap

It is actually hypo salinity not hyper

From what I hear is that ich attack works well. But you have to remove all carbon and turn off your protein skimmer

Only copper or hypo will solve ich. Any other 'med' is meant to build up a fish's slime coat to try to prevent it from re infecting and a healthy fish.
