My tank has ich. Im sick of "managing" it, because it seems that when I put a new fish in, it dies due to ich regardless if I quarantine it and make sure it's healthy...

Anyway, im getting a quarantine tank large enough to house all my fish and go fallow in my DT. It's going to be a lengthy process to catch all my fish, but im willing to do it.

I come here seeking advice:
1. After setting up QT, and seeding it with bacteria, how long should I wait before I start transferring fish?
2. What are some good tips/advice when it comes to catching fish in a larger tank?
3. After the fallow period has been met (im gonna add a day or two to be safe), how should I go about reintroducing the fish into the DT? A couple every few days? Half at one time? All at the same time?

Is this FOLR or Reef? If FO, run hypo salinity on the whole tank and get rid of ich once at for all @ 1.009
