Unless the fish show smallish white spots, I don't believe that ich is the problem. Many fish, particularly African cichlids, exemplify this type of behavior, called "flashing". I don't know that I would add salt or any meds as of yet. The problem could be one of many, parasites, the onset of bacterial or viral infection, or some other malady due to water conditions or quality. It is good that you did the water change, that can never hurt. I would just keep a weary eye on the situation and look for anything out of the ordinary.
