Ich in New tank

I have a 10 G tank that just finished cycling. I have 4 bronze corys and 6 neon tetras. The stupid tetras brought ich into the tank. I thought, ok, let me raise the temp to above 86 for a while and kill off the ich, but my thermostat stops at 85 degrees.

So I went to the store today to by "Rid-Ich." What is your experience with this? Can it be used safely with neon tetras and corys?

No tetras are sensitive to ich meds. Get another heater and get the temp to 87 and add extra aeration to the tank. Also Rid Ich may destroy your cycle.
