Purple Tang has Ick :(

Is there any treatment that is safe for crabs/snails?
I dont currently have a hospital tank, so I was planning to treat the whole display tank. Its 100g

No I dont think so. Those reef safe treatments dont work IMO. Snails and crabs will not survive hypo or copper that are proven.

With tangs its hard. If you're able to get him in a hospital tank ( you can set one up pretty quickly if needed, just need to do more water changes) and do hyposalinity or copper is going to be your best bet. As stated before, 'reef safe' treatments dont work well.

This is why its so important to have a hospital tank before putting your fish in the display! It saves you a lot of hassle, stress and possibly heartache later on.

I have read that you should move all fish to the hospital tank and i dont have one large enough for that, it would be a lot easier for me to treat the whole tank.
