You know what they say about "quick" and saltwater right?
quICK...what a creative name. That stuff contains MALACHITE GREEN, FORMALIN which you do not want to use with your Live Rock.
As Mel sent you the main cure of ich witout medication is hyposalinity. Which is not an easy thing and cannot be done in your tank with live rock. What kind of fish is it? You may be able to beef up its own immune system to overcome the ich. But even if you do, the ich will still be present in your system unless you leave it fishless for awhile and treat the fish with copper or hypo in a QT tank.
