14 days of ick treatment

So a bunch of my fish died, luckily not my knife fish or my silver dollars. I treated with quick cure for 14 days. The last fish to die still had spots 3 days ago. I don't see any spots on the silver dollars, and as far as I can see the Clown Knife is also spot free, however he's been rubbing himself on the gravel.

So here's my questions. Should I stop treatment after 14 days? How long should I wait before I try adding more fish? Water changes?

Don't add anymore fish till all the signs of ick are gone. If you do not qt the new fish, the ick is likely to come back.
How does the water test for ammonia and nitrite?
Water changes are fine during ick treatment. It will also help remove some of the free swimming ick.

All of my water test are good(0 or near 0) ph is around 7.2.

Is light neccessary for a quaratine tank?
I have a 10 gallon that's been set up with out fish for about three weeks. Before that the fish in the tank did have ick. Should I drain and remove rocks?

If the 10 gal is uncycled, it would not hurt to do a tear down.
Are you still seeing white spots on the fish?
I don't know the answer to your lighting question. Fish will be fine for a while without a light, but if you are going to qt for a few weeks, it might prove hard on them.

The fish that are left do not have any spots.
