quarantine tank. A small 10g tank with nothing but a light and a simple hang on back filter will suffice.

I think most will agree that ich is indeed a big deal. Here's a couple articles to read up on...

Put the fish in a quarantine tank. Keep the temperature the same as the main tank and stable - don't raise it. And then follow the directions in this article:

ATJ's Marine Aquarium Site - Reference - Hyposalinity Treatment

That's assuming it is actually ich. If it is, your main tank has it and will continue to have it as long as there are fish in it. The only way to break the life cycle is to have the main tank remain fishless for 6-8 weeks - which would imply moving the bleeny out.

Raising the temperature alone (with no other treatment) won't do anything but stress your fish out, lower the oxygen levels in your tank, and maybe speed up the life cycle of the parasite. But it won't kill the ich. If you let your tank overheat, you most likely will kill your gramma.
