It is very hard to tell from the pics,

If it is there will be pimple like white spots all over the body of your fish.

To treat it you will have to remove all your fish from your display and qt them. In qt you will have to treat with hyposalinity or copper.

To completely remove it from your dt simply leave it fishless for 8 weeks.

A uv will help but not elimanate the ich. also all the water has to flow through the uv for it to be effective.You also need to make sure your qt tank is big enough to house all the fish if you remove them or your ammonia could rise along with other levels. I've used cupramine by seachem which was very effective in my qt tank.
