Ich outbreak - setting up quarentine tank

One of the fish in my display developed white spots on his head yesterday and I'm assuming its ich. If I'm going to transfer the fish into a quarentine tank for medication how big would it have to be to house the following fish

1 maroon clown
1 green chromis
1 lawnmower blenny
1 pj cardinal
1 coral beauty angel

I have a 14 gallon biocube I could set up right away, will this be ok for a month? Christmas is in 2 days and I'm broke...

The first link is on setting up a QT. The other two are info on the parasite and treatment options.
