What is the salinity? Have you tried anything to eliminate the white spot? What is your temperature? Tank size and what fish in it?

None of the fish are brackish. What made you think they're brackish? No need to add salt if you were doing it on the advice of some lfs. What is your salinity? If it's high end, hyposalinity will probably work.
