I had the same problem about two weeks ago with my yellow hawaiian tang. I bought a copperband butterfly which brought it home from the pet store. My tang fought with him and consequently got the ich. My Royal Gamma Basslet also got it. Well the copperband died in a week so I couldn't save him but this is what I did.
I went to the store and bout some pellet food called "Spectrum Thera +A" by New Life which is basically a natural non-medicated anti-parasitic pellet. This fends off ich and other internal parasites and it's a food that I feed every day. There are also garlic additives you can buy and add directly to your food and do it naturally, but this stuff has everything in it. At $20 for a 5.3oz can it's a little high, but it lasts a while.
Since feeding and a few water changes, all my infected fish are ich free.
