Ich already!

Hi, so ive had a 10 gallon tank up and running abt 6 weeks. Only have 3 cherry barbs and they are already covered in ich. Doing water changes, adding salt, treating with quick cure and going to purchase a new heater tomorrow that will bring the temp up to 85 (if they make it that long). Any other suggestions to get rid of this stuff asap? oh and will the meds mess up the bio filter or should i just leave it alone? Thanks!

Vacuumed everything, did major water change, added more salt, increased aeration and now
the temp is headed up. Hopefully this will knock it out soon. Left the bio filter in for now, guess
I will change it and the carbon filter out once the meds are done.
