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

      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.
