Who said to just throw meds at the fish? Come on, really? Not a newbie here guys. Lol.

Proven Ich Remedies: Copper or Going Fallow.

My personal experiences: Metro+Focus - Garlic Enhancer, and if ich was a result of a secondary infection like flukes, Prazipro in conjunction.
Actually, hyposalinity should also be on your list of ich solutions.

You should not do any treatment in the display tank. Both copper and hypo are needed to be done in a hospital tank, which can then leave the display fallow for the life cycle of the ich parasite. Both copper and hypo will kill off inverts in the tank, copper will leach into the rock and sand,...there are many other reasons but won't drone on about it.
