    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.
