I think all the fish would live through the heat, as long as you turn the heat up slowly and increase the available air. Make the tank as full of air bubbles as you can get it. If you use a hang on the back type filter, drop the water line to get more air from the filter.
If you go with meds, get one that says its ok to use on sensitive fish, such as your catfish. Better to start using it at half dose and keep a close eye on the catfish. I burnt the whiskers off one of my catfish using Quick Cure at half dose, has made me leery of meds.
Even if you go with meds, the heater would be good to have. If you use meds only take the heat up to 82 deg. At 82, it is to warm for the ick to live on the fish and they will start falling off. The meds only work on the free swimming ick.
