I have a guppy that has fungus on it. In the same tank I have 60 newborn fry meds?

I listened to Cory's video on treating for quarantine and treating for an active infection.   He said to use maracyn and Ich-x and follow directions.   PROBLEM:  Ich-x says to replace water every 24 hrs and maracyn says don't change water for 5 days.    WHAT AM I TO DO??? 

We checked and the water is good,  we have 1 adult a bunch of juvies and 60 fry that are 3 days old.   I want the fish well but I don't know what to do at this point.   HELP
