    I think it looks like the beginning visible stage. Is it on more than one fish?

    Welcome to the forum. As the fish have a fuzzy appearance odds are it is not ich. As you've already stated, ich looks like salt.

    If it is fuzzy, then it is most likely a bacterial infection. Can you get a picture that better shows the fuzzy patches? Might help to better diagnose.

    Until you know if it is a true bacterial infection or not, do not raise the temps or start medications. Treating without knowing what is wrong can be even more detrimental to your fish.
