New Loaches w/ICH

Hi Floks,
I've just found this awesome website, a little too late. I have 3 clown loaches with ICH. First I treated 5 days 1/2 dose of Maracide, and no results. I went back to the LFS and they suggested NOX-ICH for 3 days...again with no results. Now I'm trying Coppersafe, also 1/2 dose. I feel like the cure is worse then the disease. I can see reading the threads here that you folks have dealt with this many times. I'm I hurting my loaches worse ? Should I try the Maracide longer ? This is just heart breaking. My Cory cat, and Guppies are just fine. The diseased Guppy my son surprised me with looks great now. My babies(loaches) just aren't any better. I just put a new charcoal filter in tonight to de-activate some of the meds.
