Unhappy Questions/Help regarding ICH/ICK


My aquarium has been infected with ich and I have been treating it ever since I saw the spots on my fishes. It has been 4 days that I have been treating it according to the instructions. I was instructed to take out all the decorations and plants so I did.

So my questions are:
how long does it take for ich go go away?
Is there anything else I should be doing?

Freshwater Aquarium:
Temperature 80
2 Angel Fish (Medium)
2 Orange Swoardtail (Medium)
2 Boesemani Rainbow (Small)
5 Guppies (Small)
1 Pictus Catfish (4 in.)
1 Normal Pleco (Small)

Thank you

Salt (sodium chloride to be more precise) should have been sufficient enough. What are the active ingredients of that med?
