For me personally I reduced water changes at this point, the less the stress for the fish, the better. Once they show signs of getting better then I would start again with the changes back to normal. One week or two of no water changes shouldn't affect the tank too much unless your bio load is super high. Obviously monitor the water parameters and if you see anything unusual, then do a change.

I have ich in my planted tank as well. Since last week I started using Kordon Ich Attack and I used the whole bottle (16Oz) and Ich is still present in my tank. As far as I can tell it kept the ich under control, the ich spots is only my Neon tetra now. None of my shrimps nor snails died.
I went and bought 2 more bottle, I hope it'll enough to cure it this time.
And I got these for 14.99 each from Petco

Its been four days with eleveated heat (87-88f), and regular lighting- no meds.

So far my Black Tetras, the ones I believe smuggled the Ich in, still have a small amount of spots (maybe 5 each). My Neon tetras nowvhave some spots, very small, and a few each. But none of the other fish (Coreys, Otos, Green Tiger Barbs or shrinp and snails) are showing any signs.

Any suggestions?
