Do you think that would make a difference in the wait time or is just simply waiting it out my best option?

Thanks!
As far as I know there are no "Reef Safe" product that will eradicate ich from your display tank successfully. Also Ich will have no issue surviving in 1.020 salinity. It would need to be at 1.009 for at least 2-3 weeks to eradicate it, but at that level it will also kill all your corals, invets and good bacteria.
Some great reading here if you have not read it yet:
