I would leave them right where they are. Moving them now won't kill any ich in the tank they're in. Just heat the tank and watch it took about three days for the couple fish I had with it. The rest of the fish in my tank never were bothered. I did not use any salt as I have Clown Loaches and Plecos salt is not good for all fish. I don't think you need it

Raise the temp and vacuum the gravel in open areas some to pick up anything that may have dropped off the fish. I kept my temp up for two weeks then brought it back to normal. Haven't seen any ich again.

Good luck 😀👍🏻

Thanks so much, already 3 days at 83 degrees. So far it hasn't helped, my Oscars are still full of white spots, I hope it will start working soon.....

I've kept my task at 83 degrees for 5 days now, and my Oscars don't seam to get better, but worse. The white spots on them don't go away, but get bigger. I've just now added a fungi medicine, will see what happens tomorrow.

Just wanted to update on my fight against fungi

You do not have the water temp high enough at 83*. You need to get it above 86* F. Here's a link to Ich.

Increase the aeration as well (eg filter spray bar pointing towards water surface). Both heat and meds will reduce oxygen content in water.

Good the hear that it's taking effect. Do water changes more frequent and vacuum some but don't over do it. About 10-15% at a time. Keep the temp p above 86* F for at least 2 weeks after you don't see the spots on the fish. Then start dropping back to normal.
