Put temp to 85-86 and add salt at 1tsp/5 gallons.
If you didn't have the cories in there I'd say 1tsp/gallon, but they are salt sensitive.
Ich is practically untreatable by medication, it can kill the form that hasn't attached to the fish with medication, but what is already on the fish will still survive.
Heightening the temp allows for the life cycle of ich to speed up and therefore your fish will get better faster.
Make sure to keep the temp up for atleast 1 week after the last signs of it (the white specks) are gone from all your fish. If you don't do this then there is a high chance of it reappearing.
Good luck and welcome to AA!!
