If he's swimming around and eating, you may be able to still treat him in a QT tank with either copper or hypo salinity. If he is dead, you need your tank to be fish less for 8 week.

Even if he survives in a QT you need to leave him out of the DT for a good 8 weeks.
Ich won't reproduce on corals and inverts so they are safe.

QT should be at least 8 weeks anyway, which will leave the tank fallow for the right amount of time. But agreed nonetheless

I would try to save him ... If he lives you ca buy qt a then let the display tank sit 8 weeks
Either try to save him or euthanize him don't let him suffer

I cant buy a qt. Honestly all that plus the medication would be more expensive than just buying a new fish haha
