Best way to clean QT tank after Ich

What is the best way to clean my 10 gallon QT tank after treating Ick? Do I need to throw out my filter cartridges? Also, I know that I need to leave my DT fishless for 6-8 weeks. The only livestock I have in it right now are 2 peppermint shrimp, 1 emerald crab and hermit crabs and snails. How high can I raise my water temp without hurting the livestock?

Heat doesn't work to kill marine ich. You can't use anything with copper in it because of the crabs and shrimp. Ich can only live with a host and the life cycle of ich is I believe is 6 to 8 weeks.
