ich is not a big problem, if that is your case, for all hobbyist ich will eventually come sooner or later, treating it is just way to easy.
here are the 1,2,3s...
1.raise temperature to 86F (ich will spawn in high temperature, which means leaving the host a.k.a your fish)
2.use aquarium salt, or copper safe from mardel (it doesn't stain tank), these will only work when ich is spawning which means is not attached on your fish
3. week later do a 50% water change (make sure temp is stable)
finally, to prevent anymore ich happening, make sure.
1. no rapid water temp change, (THE MAIN CAUSE OF ICH INFECTION)
2. tank too dirty can cause too
3. when get new fish observer for a week before adding to the tank
i'm sure these are things are probably on your ich medication treatment directions, but i speak from experience, and it ain't a big deal ;)
