Do you know anyone that could keep your nem and coral for awhile. If so you can do a hypo treatment. I just lost a my tang from ich. Sucks so bad. Good luck

I would by a cheap tank from Craigslist and set it up for qt. all you need in it is a hob filter heater a light and a couple small pieces of PVC. That's the only safe way to go.

What size tank is he in? If he is in a small tank, he will continue to stress and get ich again.

The parasites are under the fishes skin and therefore cannot be eaten by the shrimp. Your best bet is a cheap 20 gal. tank (try petland) to treat it in. Also the ich is already in your display tank so you would need to remove the other fish and leave the tank fishless for 4 to 6 weeks to kill off any ich in that tank the corals and inverts can remain. Do not treat the main tank. Good luck

Ich has a life cycle of 4-8 weeks. Normally going hypo will kill it off in about 4 weeks. The longer you leave your tank fallow the less chance of your fish being reinfected with ich. I'd go fish less for 8 weeks
