redcross Ich Outbreak in comm tank!

Help guys, I've recently discovered an ich outbreak in my tank.. a lot of fish have gotten white spots all over their bodies and I'm not sure what to do. I don't have a quarantine tank big enough for so many fish...

Is there anything I can do to help kill off the ich? Recommended medication / steps?

Fish in my tank are, Neon,Black Neon, Glo-light Tetras. 2 Honey Gouramis, 2 Zebra Loaches, 2 Corydoras.

I heard that heating isn't good for there any other method?

No point to quarantine ur fishes now as your entire tank is infected.

Fortunately it is very easy to treat.

1) Increase ur tank's temp to about 31 to 32 degree celcius.
2) Add anti-itch medication as most of your fishes are infected now.

The above would solve your problem. Do it fast else those white spots will grow in the gills and ur livestocks would die off pretty soon after that.
