Can shrimp (cherry, CRS) survive the heat treatment for an ich outbreak?

I have a 10g tank with some juvi cories, bristlenose, and a few guppy fry. This tank also houses my entire cherry and crystal red shrimp populations.
Now from what I've read the shrimp can't catch the ich, but my question is will the shrimp tolerate a heat treatment? I know CRS like a lower temp to live in permanently but would 2 weeks at 83-86 or whatever it is, kill them off?

I would/can move all the fish to a different tank to treat but catching juvi cories requires pretty much breaking down the tank because they are so fast and sneaky. So I would like to avoid this route if possible. Thanks to anyone who might have some knowledge or experience they can share!

if this is more appropriate for the sick fish forum instead, please let me know & my appologies in advance!
