I had a flame angel with ich. I used cupramine and it worked fantastic. Just make sure you follow the directions and get a copper test kit that will test for i believe ionic copper but use it in a qt tank not in the main. You can remove it later with carbon or seachem makes cuprasorb that will remove it.make sure you remove the carbon from your filter

Don't know the exact answer for you some fish are more fragile then others I can only guess, but I can tell you I have four striped damsels in my qt tank with the flame and they never got it when the flame had it.

Any fish that is stressed is more likely to come down with ich. Feeding food soaked in garlic does help as well. Personally I wouldn't treat my tank with copper because you will have problems even keeping snails until it is all out of the system.
