I've found garlic extreme worked for me. Because the ICH is in the tank putting the fish in a QT tank cures the fish until it's returned to the main tank.
From the advice from a high end LFS
owner. He said ICH was like the common cold, It's always around and you catch it when your immune system is compromised. With SW
fish moving from one tank to another causes stress. Stress=ICH.
Before anyone says garlic wont cure ICH. There in no cure for the common cold either but there's a whole isle in the drug store devoted to the cold.
