All of the advice given is spot on and should be followed for the long term health of your tank and it's inhabitants. I did the hyposalinity QT for the livestock in my 125 a couple of years ago. I had to remove all the LR (temporarily into 20gal Brute bins) to get all the fish out. I can tell you that it is worth it to rid your tank of Ich.

Partial water changes of 10-20% once or twice a day are the penalty until you can establish a bio-filter in the QT tank. I used a HOB with biowheel during the QT. The fish can live with the higher nitrates and PWC's help keep those in check. They also help keep the pH stable which can be another problem with hyposalinity.
