Cool, thanks guys.
I took a little over 24 hours to increase the temp from 78 to the max that my heater seems to be able to provide at 84.7. Because I was unable to achieve Ich-destroying temperature, I added a 3/4 dose meds (3/4 because I read that the neons are sensitive to the meds). The high temp should increase the parasite's life cycle time and, as a result, speed the process of killing it. I removed my snail to a 2.5 gallon hospital and will keep it there for 30 days before returning it to the main tank. I will provide as close to a real-time bulletin of the death toll as possible which will hopefully remain at zero. I figure that the outcomes of all of our experiences/experiments, add up to a more accurate understanding of our hobby's dynamics.
As a relative noob, I am psyched about my aquarium. Thanks for the forum. Larger tanks are in my future
(once I move out of this apartment).
