can clown loaches take 90F?

I have 7 clown loaches in my discus tank and they appear to enjoy life there but I'm pretty sure I have a gill fluke problem with the discus and I have to treat for it. Seems that the safest med is praziquantel, but it does require a temp of 90F (or more). The discus can take this, but can the loaches? I really don't want to do anything to hurt them, (sometimes I think I should just devote the tank to them and forget the discus) but think I have to treat the whole tank because if the discus have the flukes I'm sure that the loaches do too.
If anyone has any experience with loach temp tolerance I would really appreciate the info.
