My favorite go-to article in regards to Ich:

The Skeptical Aquarist

As long as he is already by himself he is in effect in QT. You can treat him in the tank he is already in.

no now he is in my community tank. should i put him in solitary confinement?

If you read the article (and you did read the article, right?? ;-)) once one fish has Ich they have ALL been exposed and the entire tank must be treated.
