Try hyposalinity. You will need a good refractometer to get the spg at treatment level. Here is a link that explains the procedure.
Or, use cupramine. It is a copper based medication that if very fish friendly. Just make sure you treat in a bare bottom (you can use PVC
pipe for the fish to hide in) qt
tank. Also make sure you get the proper test kit (seachems multitest for copper) to keep copper levels at treatment dosage.
Please do not use copper (or any med) in the main display tank or a tank that you plan on using for a display in the future. If you must use a future display tank, use the hyposalinity treatment.
To rid the system of ich, all fish must be removed and the display tank must be fishless for 4-6 week to allow the parasite to go through its life cycle and die off.
