    A 30 gallon tank is way too small for a Yellow Tang. It is gonna be stressed in there (hypo or not) and needs a bigger tank asap. Even though Live Aquaria (and other sites) say a 30 gallon is the minimum for a Dwarf Angel, I personally feel that is too small for them too. I have Dwarf Angels is both my 60 and 180 and they swim over every inch of those tanks and it's hard for me to imagine them in anything smaller.

    I do wish you good luck with your ich, but I think you will have a hard time curing a Tang of ich that is stressed from being is too small of tank.

    Are you doing this in your main tank? Because this will kill of any inverts you might have, normally you do any kind of treatment in a separate tank.

    Also, most of have ich in our tank which we manage by keeping our fish stress free, on a good diet and keeping good water quality. Ich only becomes a problem when the fish is compromised by some other issue, usually stress. I would say your fish are stressed because the yellow is in too small of tank and like a domino effect, the other fish get stressed and sick.
