Hospital tank

Hi! I and sadly my fish ran out of luck. I did not quarantine, and it's been fine for 10 years.
Have ich . Very short on room , but set up ten gallon hosp tank. Will forever quarantine after this.
I took ten gallons of tank water, added Ich-X and have a Tomato clown, and Ocellerous clown,
Small Yellow Tang in hosp tank. Changing 2 1/2 gallon daily. Ammonia is .25 will that hurt the fish? I don't want to not feed them enough.

You donít want Amy detectable ammonia. It will burn the gills of your fish. You need to do water changes until ammonia isnít detected.

Ammonia levels are never good at any level. Best thing I did was turned the heat up as high as my fish could handle. Left lights off. Waited for 3 days and did a 50% water change. 1-2 days do another water change. Just make sure you add the conditioner each water change. Gotta keep them stress free, and the slime coat on they're body. Less slime more stress, more sick fish. Lights out I found is the best. Even if you gotta cover the tank with a blanket or something. Sounds too simple to work but, but it does.

How does it stain, it's a clear liquid?
Having heat higher helps with ammonia?
Temp now is 78

If the treatment in the bottle is blue, it will stain. The heat will kill the ich. In order to get the ammonia level down you'd have to do water changes. If you put something new in the tank it might have spiked that ammonia level.

This is sw ich. Heat wonít do anything. Treating in the hospital tank and leaving the display fallow for 8-10 weeks is the only guaranteed way to 100% rid the tank of ich.

Only three ways to cure marine ich
Copper
Hyposalinity
Transfer method
***ICH: HOW TO TREAT: Marine ICH(cryptocaryon irritans) - Reef Central Online Community
I would make larger water changes to remove ammonia and re treat with necessary med. Hopefully copper based...
