Yes, they'll be fine. They don't need tropical temperatures.

I added heater to be safe plus I want to speed up ich cycle so ich dies off of them so I don't reintroduce it into tanks once I'm done medicating

Not needed. They can't carry ich. Any ich that might have gone with them will be dead in a day or two from lack of a host.

What med did you use ? If it was copper based, you may have a problem. It's hard to get rid of copper based meds and copper is highly toxic to inverts.

I would do 2 water changes before you add them back in, and at the second one toss the old med'd up filter pads. I had the same thing happen, snails and frogs, in a jar on my coffee table for 3 weeks. Everyone did just fine.

Sounds good.. I am SO glad I have managed to avoid ick to this point. I have so many inverts it would be a huge pain to deal with.
