In the classified section, made me think you were wanting to sell some. I was hoping someone had made an offer.

The standard treatment is copper. For fish only, seems like a reasonable method.

remove into a hospital tank, and lower salinity, ive heard cleaner shrimp dont do anything because the parasite is actually under the skin

why do i pick the expensive hobbies.

If you have the tanks.I would pull the fish out put in quarantine tank ( I would recommend at least two). Nothing from the old goes with the fish but the ich no rock or sand. I would put in the flower pot(s) for hiding spot(s). Change the tank and water every three days within 12 days fish should be clean of ich. Break the cycle and it die off,no checimals or metals needed. Copper works but can make fish not want to eat then starve and die. The tank must be switched out entirely every three days. Has worked every time no loss.

If you do quarantine the fish the old tank will need four to six weeks for the ich to die from all the substrate.
Other ways works too but IMO some have a risk. No risk other than having empty tanks that need more salt water in then haha good luck
Always be leery of a fish farmer...wait or is it a pig farmer?

I agree with the above.  Just do it right the first time and make sure you QT any new members of the family from now on.
