getting ready to raise water temp

Well, ive researched all about ick, and seems that raising the water temp in the tank seems to be my best bet. Ive been treating with garlic, but my purple tang doesnt seem to be completely cured.

I have a purple tang
pair of black clowns
Flame angel
cleaner/fire shrimp
clown goby
enginneer goby
and crabs

Plus i have quite a few corals...

Would all of them be safe if i raised the temp to 86?

I believe raising temp will help you with FW, but with SW it will do nothing but stress out your stock and quicken the lifecycle of the parasites. Here is an article that will give you better info. Removing the fish to a qt tank and a 6 week fishless time in the main is the answer.
Also spend some time reading through the threads in this forum. Much good info here.
