Raising the temp won't help rid of the disease. It will make life harder on your fish.
Do you own a qt tank? If not I would get one, move the clown to it and pray the others don't get it ASAP.
After that you can start treatment.

Yeah, unfortunately those FW tricks don't apply to SW..

As quarryshark said, get a QT set up as soon as possible.
