most meds, including life guard, are toxic to inverts. malachite green is also toxic to inverts, as well as formalin, which will give you cancer as well. kordons ich attack is about the only "med" that's invert safe, but IMO its a waste of money. with shrimp in the tank you have very limited options for treatment. your best bet would be to pull all of the fish out to a QT tank and treat with copper, which is the only proven treatment for ich. otherwise, pristine water quality will help. ichs brought on by stress and poor WQ. regular water changes and high quality food can usually help the fish fight off the parasite. I used this technique with my reef tank with great success. hope this helps.
