We just got my little girl a male guppy and a bottom dweller/alge eater and the bottom dweller has ICH! I looked at him today and he only had a few spots so I thought he'd be fine until later tonight when I could go to the store and get him medicin but it spread FAST and it is now ALL over the poor little thing. I have no idea how many drops to put into a one gallon and there isn't a filter in the one gallon tank and the instructions talked about filtering. I am just confused and don't want my daughters first fish to die!

Sorry, I dont know what to tell you We had the same problem years ago and lost all of our fish despite using medicine . You may need to seperate the bottom feeder and really clean the tank well.

Your ordeal is probably over but you can use online tools to help you figure out how to dilute the medicine.
The only thing you need to concern yourself with is if you HAVE a filter. And then, you need to turn it off. The filter media would take the medicine out of the water.
