Is it a reef tank or fowlr? Most people use a qt and treat with copper medication. It's the most effective in saltwater I've only had one incident with a few spots I upped water changes and added garlic to the food and water and it was gone in a few days. If your fish are passing from it I would use the copper method.

You will need to treat in a hospital tank with either copper or using hypo salinity. Your display should be left fallow (no fish) for 6-8 weeks to allow to ich to die off. That is the only two ways to beat it - if you don't leave your tank fallow the ich will remain there and infect all new arrivals...
