Angry Ahhh @*%#!!!

So, I was getting ready to take a few pics of my Rainbows. It was then I noticed it... the white salt grain of doom. I've started raising the temps, but I'm not sure what else to do. I have the tank pretty heavily planted and don't wanna toast all of them. Probably will stick with the Warm Water + Salt method, but key back the usual dosage of salt and hope for the best. The plants are somewhat replaceable, the fish on the other hand, are not.

Luckily I think I've caught it early enough to nip it in the bud pretty quick. Only 2 of the fish had specs, and on each of them a max of 3-4 specs, and all of those were on the fins. I guess we'll see how it goes.

Update:
This morning I can only find 1 Spot on 1 Fish. All of the fish are still eating voraciously, and all are active. None are flashing or scraping. Their colors are a bit muted, but I think this may be due to the increase in temps. I'll be doing another 50% change and adding some more salt.

Best results I had with several ich break outs here when buying new fish was the QuIck Cure from Walmart (only thing I found here at the time but it worked) I just dialed the Temp up dosed at half dose as recommended for Tetra's and was done. Salt I have zero exp with. But the higher Temp+QuIck cure did the trick on the fish here and also didn't hurt plants (and contrary to the lable warning it did not kill any snail of mine).

Good luck man!!!
