Thanks for the Ick Help

I did a partial water changes because I was doubtful on how to use the meds properly. I turned the temp up and have added more salt and turned the tank light off. Do you know if carbon will remove the salt? So far there doesn't seem to be any improvement but no has died and all are still eating well.

These fish are supposed to be stocking a much larger tank in the future. How can I make sure that they wont infect the larger tank? How long after recovery should I wait? How can I destroy any chances of a new outbreak once the fish are removed from this tank? Is there any preventative measures I can take for the tank that isn't infected?

Thanks in advance, KK
