quick advice

I have an outbreak off ich in my tank from my two new rams. My question is could I add another thermostat as my other one isn't getting the temp up? So I could use both & would my shrimp survive the heat. Thanks

Mine rooms getting cold too, got my heaters on. The tank is up too 82 need it higher, thought if I added another heater it would help especially at night. The rams are only infected won't too get on top off it asap. Thanks
