Sorry to hear about that. At this point I would not add any fish until the ich has cycled itself out (at least 2wks, 1 month would be even better) and raising the temperature to 86F will increase the reproductive rate of the parasite, that is of course if there is nothing else remaining in the tank (invertebrates, mobile invertebrates, etc)?

In that case, you can raise the temperature (slowly depending on your actual readout) to 82F to help increase the cycle time and remain fishless while still performing water changes (gravel vacuuming helps).

Majority of fish are wild caught. I don't recommend mixing clownfish species due to aggression and maroon clowns can become very aggressive as they age. Not sure of the tank size, but either way you should be fine with 2 ocellaris or perculas and a goby even in a nano.
