Looks like you have a type of thread algae. It shouldn't be related to your recent dosing of Ich medication. Posting some water parameters will be helpful in diagnosing the algae problem. Also include volume/frequency of your water changes. I usually develop thread algae when something bottoms out, such as po4 or no3. As for the Ich, it can remain in the tank for a week or so without a host. If you decide to add more fish in the near future, I would first syphon your substrate and dose the medication as a preventative measure once the fish are added. Personally, I would be to go a couple weeks fallow (without fish) to reduce the likelihood of future infestations. Once treatment is completed, use some carbon or a series of water changes to remove the medicine.
