Is this reef safe
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Boh,
It is NOT reef safe. You want to make sure you treat your fish in a separate tank as it will be toxic to corals and invertebrates.

will it affect live rock all i have is live rock live sand and fish
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Patrick,
It will. These treatment cannot be done in your display tank, the fish must be removed to another tank. Aside from the fact that it would have detrimental effects on the other critters in your tank (shrimp, microfauna, etc), the chemicals can stay inside the rock, sand, etc so you wouldn't be able to use anything in that tank (and according to some, the tank itself) ever with any corals or other sensitive species (shrimps, etc).
Marine Ich is usually associated with an environmental triggers like a change in water temperature, high levels of ammonia or low levels of pH. Signs of Ich can be loss of appetite, increased mucous layer and trouble breathing.
