ich in all my fish...

hi guys... i got ich in all my fish... ( or thats what i think they have)
i have a 90 gal tank, 7 months old, 50 lbs lr, 2 inch sand, 10 gal sump with protein skimmer, another smaller protein skimmer in tank, cannister filter, 2 uv lights, 6x for the cannister, 12x with the return pump in sump... temp is allways 80 deg. F.
I have a queen angel, blue hippo, yellow tang, bicolor, cleaner wrasse, and 2 clowns... the biggest is the queen, about 5 inch.
everything was ok until last week when I spotted something like a white powder on the blue tang... now he has it all over... and I see it now on all my other fish... I started using kick ich but just yesterday, I was hoping not to use anything because I also have like 20 crabs and 10 snails...
by the way... water levels are ok.
what do you guys recomend???

tangs are susceptible to ich. its in their genes so the illness gets exagerated alot. usually anyone who gets a tang will go through ich at least once. your wrasse should get into gear soon but if you truly dont intend to use medecine(wich you should, a copper free one, to play it safe) then you could try your hand at a cleaner shrimp. in no time they will feed off on the ich parasites.
