If all of the fish are dead just leave the tank fallow for a month. Ich can't survive without fish and doesn't live on inverts. Just make sure your inverts are fed and keep moving on.

How old was the tank? How about the fish? Anything happen before the crash?

Actually atleast 6 weeks. I would personally wait 8 weeks just to be sure. Ick can't survive without a host, so it will starve and die.

I know that you are new to the site but please refrain from multiple threads for the same question. You've been given the same advise in your other thread. Allow the ich to die off is your only option unless your up for treating which as stated in both threads will effect all inverts, corals, and live rock.
