Aghhhh!!! ICH!

Yesterday I noticed what seemed to be ich in the Betta coccina. Later I noticed what seemed to be tiny specs on the yoyos and the tails of the rainbows. I decided to start treating with Maracide last night. This morning all the clown loaches were out and about, all covered in ich. I've started raising the temperature of the tank as well.
The culprit? 5 albino and 1 longfin ancistrus I introduced last week. I guess you can't really see ich on albino fish... :(
I'm hoping I caught it early enough so that nobody will be hurt permanently.
