Ich and External Parasite Treatments: General Cure

I know it's safe for freshwater inverts but I can't guarantee that it's safe for saltwater inverts as I just haven't tried it before on my salt tank.
Well I already have pimafix and it treats body and fin parasites, would it work?

Well I quarantined my blenny in my 4g nano tank in my restroom for now and the spots have completely disappeared off my flame, the clowns are still clean and my six-line is out, he was hiding the whole time my blenny was in this morning. I'm going to try to hypo the nano tank because nothing else is in it but sand and a few live rock pieces and hope my other fish can fight it off.
