Tomorrow will mark 7 days that I have been treating ich. I have maintained the temperature at 86 degrees and performed daily water changes and everyone including the cories are doing fine with it. However, a couple girls still had a couple white spots on them yesterday so I feel like I should continue the treatment for at least 3 more days to be sure all of the ich is gone from the tank.

Will it be safe for me to maintain the temperature a bit longer?

Yeah the temp is fine. You should continue treatment usually a week to two weeks after you see the last white spot. So you can keep the temp up just fine, your cories might become short lived after a while but it's not like they're going to die tomorrow or anything, it just won't be the normal 2-3 years they live or whatever it is. I don't know exactly how long they're supposed to live.

So since they still have white spots I would look into some Kordon Rid-Ich or Ich-Attack, easy to dose and I used 2x the amount for my 33, so I was using 6 teaspoons at that time every day with the water changes. But since you're still seeing the white spots I'm wondering if it's one of the strains that is resistant to heat....either way I think it would be good to invest in some least stressful medicines like the Kordon stuff. That worked really well for me and my girls and no one seemed effected by it negatively. it's also safe for plants and inverts too so that's a plus!

Do you know if Kordon is a product Petco would carry or will I need to purchase online?
Hallelujah! A med that won't kill every other living thing in my tank!

lmao yeah, I used Kordon in my 33 which is planted and had rabbit snails at the time!

Yes, I bought mine from PetSmart, PetSmart is normally cheaper than PetCo for supplies but both generally carry it ^_^

So I have been treating the tank with 86 degree temperature combined with the Kordon ich-attack, and all visible white spots have been gone for 2 days. Two more days and I will begin lowering the temperature back to normal and stop dosing the meds and see how things go

You're supposed to dose at least one week after you see no more white spots. You can start lowering the temp but I think you should keep dosing Kordon.
