Scaleless fish do not tolerate heavy dosage hence half is the better option.
Mel, I don't think the quarantine tank will help considering ich will aready exist in the main tank if introduced via a carrier. However, moving all the fish to another tank for two weeks will guarantee elimination of ich as they have no host to feed on although you might get mini cycles as there aren't wastes for the bacteria to feed on either.
