You cant go by when they fall off as once gourged they fall off and over 200 come from each one. You`ll need to do it till you dont see any for a few weeks. Here are a link on it.

Yes, but im to get an idea of timeline. It's been more than the 3-7 day consensus and he's starting to rub against the PVC

You can leave the LR in there if it makes them more comfortable. It won't matter what's in the tank cause the salinity is so low the ich cannot survive no matter what they attach to. Ich is such a tricky little parasite almost like fleas for a cat they can only be killed in certain life stages so that's why it's suggested to wait such a long period of time. he may be rubbing off the parasites and that would be good how long have they been in there?

Are they ok in there? Are the water parameters good? I'd keep them in it as long as you can so this way it increases the chances of successfully getting rid of it. If you take them out to soon then you'll be at step 1 all over again

He's doing fine. Water changes keep ammonia in check and I've got temp at 78 and PH at 8.3.

The Ich has gotten bigger and I'm just looking for more insight into the process from other people's experience.

The tank is cloudy. And I saw some filmy white stuff on the suction cups. Parameters are good, I don't use lights.

Any ideas?

As far as I have read the cloudiness could be a bacterial or algae bloom or fungus or mold from rotting food. Have you tried
Cleaning it and doing a pwc to see if it is? Is the tank completely empty?

Did a pwc before I noticed the cloudiness.

My CBB is in the tank, but looks unaffected.
