No need to go over-board, David. Get some Malachite green
/formalin ich medicine and use at half strength (1drop/gal). It
usually clears up ich in a week or less. Dose every other day, or
daily. At the end of the week do some 25-40% water changes to
dilute any residual medicine. It's not harmful to plants or fish. Stay
away from the copper salt ich medicines (usually pale baby-blue in
color). It seems your plants are finally jumping and I'd be a shame
to break down the tank. The medicine should help.
