Clowns, Cories and Ick

Ok I have been to the archive and have just gotten confused. Today I noticed ick on the three new clowns (I keep yoyo's and a b. rostrata in another tank). Ofcourse today is the day we are snowed in here in Baltimore so I can not do anything until end of work tomorrow. My question are

1. Is the salt treatment acceptable with 2 leopard cories and a bristle nose plec in the tank. 2. For a 20 gallon how much salt? 2.75 *20 = 55 table spoons of salt??? 3. I use Aquari-sol from Aquaruim Products (containing zycosin soluble copper salt)as a stress reducer with each water change. If I decide to use coppersafe what about the interaction with the zycosin? 4. Do I have to shield the tank from light. 5. My tank is usually at 78 F, I have raised to 82 tonight. Can I just raise it to 86 tonight or wait
