If it's safe for a reef it's safe for ick. It won't work . Hyposalinity or copper are the only two cures for ick.

Some fish are sensitive to copper like puffers and any fish with no scales. The safest way would be hyposalinity. Do you have a quarantine tank?

Never used it. If you use copper in your tank it will get into your sand and rock and leech out over time. You will never be able to keep corals , inverts ever in the tank. Even if you take all of that out the copper will get into your silicone and do the same thing over time. Copper in your tank is a very bad idea . I'll try to find an article on hypo and post it here for you to read.

Neither copper nor hypo are safe for inverts. Unfortunately, it seems that ich has all the same tolerances and weakness as corals and inverts. So, to treat ich, you really should have a separate tank.
