Sounds like ich, should look like grains of salt. Research hyposalinity to give yourself an idea of what you will have to do. If you have inverts, do not dose the main tank with anything that contains copper.

There are no reef safe methods that will cure your tank of it. You will need to QT and do either hyposalinity or a copper treatment. The DT will also need to be emptied of fish for awhile (6-8 weeks) Using those reef safe methods only prolongs the inevitable.
