Ich????

One of my clown loaches looks like he may be getting ich?? He has a few white spots on his tail not to many on his body. I netted the loahes and looked at them close and maybe 1or2 of the others have a spot or 2. Now I am paranoid my tank will get ich. I read some archive items about ich but was hoping someone could give me a good ich treatment guideline to follow. I know the little loachey's have a tougher time b/c they are scaleless.
I have heard raising temp.
Treat with salt
or coppersafe
or maracide.
If anyone has any good guidelines please help.
It doesn't look like any of my other dudes have it yet and I would like to keep it from spreading to bad.
