Is This Ich?

Last week I noticed some white spots on my bronze cory, but they were gone the next day. This morning I noticed some spots floating around the tank. They looked almost like tiny bubbles, but they didn't really follow the current like a bubble would.

I'm going to use the heat treatment to hopefully get rid of it once and for all. Even if it's not ICH, I'd rather be safe than sorry. I don't have the space to quarantine new fish, so the new cories I added could have brought the disease in.

Here's my plan: (correct me if I'm wrong)
-Increase the tank temperature every couple of hours until it's 86 degrees F
-Frequent water changes and gravel vacuums
-Bring the heat back down after two weeks

Any suggestions? Will this harm any of my fish, fry, or inverts?

Really? I thought you were supposed to kill the ich while it's free swimming...

There's not currently any spots on the fish.

Okay... Whew! Looks like I overreacted.
