One of my angelfish has ich. I noticed it this morning and I'm opting to use the hI temp method. My question us should I use salt also? Will my corys be bothered by it?

Don't use salt. Bring your temp up to about 85, leave it there for a couple of weeks. Thorough gravel vacs every few days.

I did 10-30% water changes with good gravel vacuums every two days. Be patient too, because it will take sometime for the ICK to completely go away.

great advice from everyone!
Just please make sure you add an extra air stone as warmer temps have less oxygen and you don't need to stress them more
good luck!

What is the highest temp you think I could safely go?

I've been running my tank @86F for the past week. I began treating with Aquari-Sol for the first 4 days, and then I switched to API Super-Ich Cure. I've lost 3 Panda Corys, 3 Praecox Rainbows, and 3 Platys. The remaining 2 Panda Corys, and 2 RabautI Corys do not seem bothered by the high temps. I'm currently still seeing Ich spots on my Rainbows and 1 Panda Cory.
