Chalk bass's eye has almost completely healed itself. Still slightly protruding but it doesnt have that huge bubble over it anymore pushing it out. Clown is acting abit better but still has very faint white lines. Dosing with maracyn again today.

Glad to hear this. ICH would look like salt specks on the fish body and fins, so you seem safe from that. Also most bass get fairly large 1+ ft long, and a 7" fish should not be living in a 29g.

Had a friend of mine that is very up on his disease identification take a look at the clown and he says that it is something close to lateral line erosion and said just to spoil him with good food and vitamins. Any advice on how to rapidly kill Ich in a tank without any fish without destroying the bio? Maybe turning up the heater to like 90 for a few days, or overdosing with copper?

You can raise the temp to 86, that is the ideal temp for ich to run out its life cycle. Then you have to wait 30 days minimum from time fish were removed. That is the only way to safely kill it off, by removing the host. The copper would kill your biofilter and pollute the tank for future inverts, not good. Never put copper or any med strong enough to kill any invert in the main tank. Patience, patience, patience is the key to success in this game!
