No. Do not dose any medicine in your display tank. The only medicines that have been proven truly effective contain copper, which will leach into your rocks/sand and prevent you from the tank ever being anything besides a FOWLR system. No snails, shrimps, nothing. They make these herbal ich treatments, but there hasn't been anything proven to be effective.

If you want to treat, do so in a QT tank and run your display fallow for several months like you were planning.

+1^^^. Also don't move rocks around. They're stressed as it is.
