I looked in my tank today and thought I saw a fish with ich. Well, I look closer and discover about half of my population has beginning stages of ich. And here I am without a quarantine tank. I put CopperSafe into the water to treat it. It says it may be harmful to plants, but I've never had to treat my tank while it had plants in it.

Did I just make a terrible error and nuke all my Anubias and crypts?

You could always pull the plants if you're that concerned. They are. Low light plants and should be okay for a few days as long as they are in water. As far as the ich goes I would start treating with heat, get your tank above 80 degrees as it speeds up the life cycle of the ich.
