Help!
I had to euthanize one of my danios because of an ICH outbreak. I have one electric blue ram, and a killifish, plus some danios and some black line rasboras. I know I need to increase the temperature, but I’m not supposed to be over 80 degrees because the killifish will suffer. I’m at 80 now, which seems to keep everyone happy. What are my alternatives? I have put salt in my aquarium.

Keep the temp up 8-10 degrees higher for 2 weeks. The fish will be fine.

Just add aeration and do gravel vacs daily.
i have had same problem as op, i fixed it (while being a "noob") with heat and daily gravel vacs. to be honest, i took out all my substrate (sand) and left it bare bottom for a while after i cured the ick. the sand is back now, but my tank is cycled and happy now, nuch the opposite from befor (when ick appeared). you can do this, it help you to feel adequit in you ability to help/save your fish. well, i did 4 me anyway lol ")
