    It sounds like ick. Are they tiny little dots like someone just poked them with a pen and left a little dot?

    they are now just jetting around the tank biting at the gravel glass and aquarium plants.. then gently float up to the top... i put 1 tablespoon of salt in the and increased the temperature of the water in the tank

    See how that treatment works. If the spots go away then just keep the temp up a few more days. If they persist it is likely fungal or bacterial then treat with melafix/pimafix. Heres a picture of ich. If it looks like that then your treatment should be fine.

    They're probably stressed out from the ich.
    Table salt is fine.
