Rid Ich and loaches

I just saw that one of my Tertras has Ich. I have 5 Botia Striada (Zebra Loaches)in the tank. I use aqua clear wich removes heavy metals. I could not use Coppersafe. I had some Rid Ich on hand and I just treated the tank 40 Gallon Tall. In another forum I saw someone say that Loaches and Rid Ich don't do well. I have already medicated and raised the tank temp to 85F. What is the side effect of the Rid Ich going to be to the Zebra Loaches? I am not sure what to do. Please advise. I have a Hospital tank up and running. Also has AquaClear. I do have Ammo Lock to change the water in the hospital tank and put coppersafe inside. But the zebras have already got a shot of Rid Ich so I am scared to move the fish and then hit them with another medication. I do not want to loose my Zebra Loaches, they are the best of the best. Please HELP ME!!!!
