Search the forum for "ich" and you'll find many discussions. To truly rid yourself of ich without killing the corals you'll need to treat all the fish in a quarantine tank with either a copper solution or hyposalinity, and let the main tank go fishless for 6-8 weeks. My vote is hypo.

Hypos is my vote too! By the way, the ich won't bother the corals/inverts.
