um, to be honest i don't know a lot about different treatments for ich, but i had some tetras once that had it and i treated them with wardley 'ickaway' - i'm not sure if your lfs/petco stocks that, but it worked for me. i also turned the temperature up (to about 27 degrees i think.) anyway ickaway just contains malachite green and acriflavine, i think. i had corys in the tank when i treated it and it didn't harm them, although the pair i had were particularly resilient so its probably best not to use them as an example. it didn't harm my plants either. i don't know about snails though as i've never had them.
anyway that's just my experience, i think ickaway is pretty cheap and easy to get, it was for me anyway, ...but if its a bad infestation it probably wouldn't be strong enough, i'm really not sure. i hope the fishies recover anyway :)
