Thanks again. I've got the airstone going as I'm getting the temp up and figured it can't hurt. I'm less worried about the plants than I am the fish, so whatever happens to them happens.

14g Tall:
Planted, eco-complete, Red Cherry Shrimp

16g Aqueon Bowfront:
Planted, eco-complete, 8 Ember tetras, 7 Green neon tetras, 6 Harlequin Rasboras

36 Aqueon Bowfront: Planted, sand, 10 Julii cories, 8 Zebra Danios
7 Cherry Barbs, Asst snails & Ghost shrimp

Day Two - Temp is now at 86.5 in the tank and all fish seem to be taking it well. They ate like pigs this morning and are swimming around like nuts as they always do. The neon who had the big white non-ich spot on his head has now developed what looks like soft grayish fungus on both sides of the back half of his body. His color is fine and it doesn't seem to have affected his appetite or swimming ability. Because of that, I'm continuing the Quick Cure treatment (I've read mixed reviews on its ability to cure fungus, but it's all I have at the moment and since the treatment was already started, carrying through seemed like a plan.)

No further fish are infected with the ich as best I can tell. In fact, none of the embers have it, just the few neons.
