Okay. Along with my Aqueon 55?

Different people have different methods of dealing with illnesses. I prefer meds, Quick Cure and lots of it. Others prefer to go as natural as possible and will up the temp and maybe add some salt. Obviously success can be found with both methods otherwise people wouldn't keep suggesting them, hopefully. What method you prefer is up to you.
Well, I understand this, but at this point, I'm unclear if it's just something that would be "up to me;" I don't really know the route to take. I am just beginning to think I have over-medicated this tank to the point that the water is polluted, the filter cartridges are shot and smell and the possibility that the fish at this point are choking on all the crap floating in that water -- is it possible I will have any luck doing a massive water change and vacumming the gravel to get rid of the excess waste and food, plus raising the temperature of the water?

Yes, keep the Aqueon 55 running and add an AC110.

I already gave you my recommendation, Quick Cure and lots of it. That is what I would do if any of my fish had ich. Other people prefer no meds and to up the temp and let it runs its course. This will usually work just as well but I prefer meds.
