Well the ich will reside on your rock and substrate in its dormant state, thats where the fallow period comes in. Did you remove the clown during the 5 weeks? Even 1 fish in the tank is a potential host.
I would try keeping the clown out for a longer period. When I went through a velvet treatment I left it void of fish for 8 weeks. It did the trick for me.

Buy your friends tank, use your 33 gallon for a QT tank, you can probably cycle your new tank with the clown and treat your old tank over the cycle time of the new one.

Then you might want to read up on >>Cryptocaryon irritans<< (marine ich) instead.
Ichthyophthirius Multifiliis is the FW variety and the two may have similarities but do not behave the same.
