Without seeing them it's hard to say for sure, but I would move quickly and treat for ich, that stuff can take hold pretty quickly. I've lost too many fish to it, I don't mess around anymore!

Pretty sure its ich. Id separate and treat immediately because it can kill the fish. I've used QuickCure with lots of success.

Once you spot ich on one fish the entire tank has been exposed to ich. If it were my tank (and it's not!) I'd leave the fish were it is and treat the entire tank. You can use meds or go the high/temp salt method. Ich is very treatable if you get on it right away. I had an infestation in my tank and I'm now ich free, knock wood. Good luck!

I would think that if you're keeping the fish at standard Lake Malawi parameters, the water would be so hard that ich wouldn't really survive. Plus, Malawi fish like it pretty warm.
