will my fish die from ich?

Three days ago I noticed small white little dots on my hippo tang and found out it was ich,the pet store was closed for the weekend and before i could get any treatment for the fish,tonight i noticed he was very pale blue and almost dead.I will be going to the pet store first thing in the morning to get protozin but i am wondering if the fish will make it,if anyone has experienced ich before,and has advice that might be helpful?please reply,my levels are ph 0-nitrate 10 nitrite 0 amonia 0

You need to get medication fast. Try putting her in a QT tank if you have one untill further notice.

You Nirates are a little high for a SW setup. Do you have corals?

And there is no such thing as 0 pH.
