On the Ich treatment, the best thing I have found is Kick Ich by Ruby Reef. It is not cheap by any means, costs around $40-$50 at the LFS in OKC area; however, well worth the money! It is safe for your scaleless fish, it has now saved two of my tanks that I have had an Ich outbreak in and I will not use anything else for Ich treatment with scaleless fish.
Every fish actually carries Ich all of the time and the outbreak is usually triggered by stress; a sudden change in environment, temp, ph, etc.
Oh, and I would not add anymore fish until you complete the Ich treatment...no reason to make new fish suffer. Also, to prevent new outbreaks I recommend to always quarantine your fish for 5-7 days to watch for any disease process before adding them to an established tank. We keep a spare 10g ready to set up just for this purpose.
Hope all of this helps!
