Well without a purchase of a third heater I am at 85.6 degrees. Will this kill ICH? I have only ever done it with salt but I dot want to kill my plants or my Pleco

I might be ok....

"It has been found that Ich does not infect new fish at 29.4C/85F (Johnson, 1976), stops reproducing at 30C/86F (Dr. Nick St. Erne, DVM, pers. comm.), and dies at 32C/89.5F (Meyer, 1984), [1]"

Get a BIG powerful one rated for a much larger tank (maybe 100g?) and that should work. Fingers crossed!

Yeah I found the same article

I bought a Fluval 100 watt and I have a 60 day return on it. So now I have 250 watts of heat. I hope this does it. The Fluval says it will go no more than 18 degrees higher than room temp.
