55 gallon Ich

So i saw one of my fish had ich on it. So im deciding to treat the entire tank.

Ive prepared The Correct ammount of Salt Water for the Tank,

was just wondering if there is anything else i can do?

I was going to add some AquaSafe and Some Antibacterial stuff to help De-stress the fish. (if that makes sense)

Its my first case of ich. Ive gues ive been lucky all 8 years of Me owning Aquariums to never have to treat it.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear about this. Ich is a drag, for sure, but at least it's highly treatable.
You might want to check out this thread, as far as treating ich with salt:

Dissolve salt thoroughly and add slowly. This is the main rule when using salt especially when you have bottom dwellers in it. Don't waste your time on chemicals. Just do your usual routine and treat with salt and heat.

I just noticed today that some of my fish have Ich. I went to my local aquarium store and they said to just set my heater at 85 degrees for roughly a week, and do daily water changes of roughly 20% (using gravel vac because the Ich also lives in the rocks).

He did not mention any use of aquarium salt. Is the salt NEEDED or can Ich be cured by just increasing the temperature to 85 and daily water changes???
