Water changes and garlic won't get rid of ich. There's also no point in giving the Wrasse back to the lfs since your tank is already infested. The only real way to treat ich in a reef tank is a 6 week fallow period along with a hyposalinity treatment for the fish. I would also invest in a qt system for Tue future.

It might take 3 - 4 weeks before you see anything but its a 99% probability that your tank has ich now.
