You need to setup a hospital tank and treat him using hyposalinity or copper treatment.

Raising temp won't cure marine ich that's for fw. If it was ich then it's still in there currently multiplying in the sand bed it will come back worse. Read this.

The spots come and go in cycles. In about a week or 2 the spots will be back but they will be much worse.

you need to set up a qt and put all the fish in there and treat them with either copper or hypo and leave the dt without fish for 4 to 6 weeks to kill off any ich in the main tank cause if the other fish don't have it they soon will. Do not treat the main tank cause either treatment will kill any corals, or inverts. Make sure you watch for any ammonia spikes in the qt and do any necessary water changes. good luck
