Ich usually shows up in the first week of a new fish being introduced into a tank.
Do you have any invertebrates, corals, or anemones? Because if you don't I would recommend adding copper or doing hypo-salinity. If you do I would probably just make sure to get him fed good, keep the stress low, and make sure water quality is top notch. In the ocean fish have about a 50/50 fight off rate of ich.

If I understood the OP correctly, it's a quarantine tank. Meaning that there aren't any of those things in it. So a copper treatment should be fine.

How much was the fish? Because copper treatment can get pricey

Oh gotcha... You can do whatever treatment you want then... But once he's in with the nem you will be very limited on your options.
