I would continue the QT a couple more weeks and also verify correct salinity.

I just went through this with a sailfin tang. Except I was using copper treatment. It took me two and half months to clear the ich from it. I started treating in november and just put him back in my display Saturday. Two weeks ago I completely changed the entire water. But I did not clean the filters so that way I would still have beneficial bacteria in the tank. I put the water back in exactly how it came out. With the same level of copper and same temp and Ph and salinity. The next day after that the tang was clear and is still clear

I also washed the pvc and fake things I had in there for them to hide in with hot water. And rinsed the tank with just hot water. Could be a coincidence but I think it helped get all the ich out then when the ones that were on my tang left him they were killed by the copper and there were none left in the tank besides those maybe

Well I completely cleaned everything in that tank. Replaced 2/3 of the water. Found out today my refractometer was off. I was getting a reading of 1.009 and it was actually 1.006.
