Quick Cure or Ich Guard with Clowns

Has anyone used either of these with clowns? i read peter's ich notes and see that striatas and others have been treated with quick cure but there is no mention of clowns. i have discovered ich on the clowns but not the striatas (so far).

I have started Quick Cure but could switch from it if there are adverse reactions. So far the clowns seem fine although they are doing the dance which they normally don't do so it makes me wonder a bit. Also i've started increasing the temp in the tank.

If you have used Quick Cure (on any fish) have you found that it wipes out the biological filter? That is my main concern as well as whether it is not good for the clowns. I started it at half strength but the limited instructions don't suggest that it be used half strength and did add it full strength, or nearly full, this am.

Has anyone used Ich Guard with clowns or other loaches?

Thanks for any help.
