need help asap plz...ich can it be treated in tank with corals

I have a clown fish with what appears to be ich although he's not rubbing rocks yet nor are the other fish showing any signs at all but I've never experienced this problem and have no qt tank (stupid move on my part) so my question is can it successfully be treated in the tank with the other fish and corals without killing them?

get yourself a qt tank pronto. Don't treat your display tank, any meds worth anything will harm your corals and inverts (ex. copper). Copper and hypo are the only real proven treatments Good luck
