green spotted puffer... Ich

Our baby puffy..( green spotted puffer ) has ich. We got him at Walmart. Yes i know they have no idea about ANY fish. However we bought him. He has 30 gal tank, big filter, heater, crushed corral bottom. We give him blood worms and shrimp. Tank temp is 80 deg. Salt level is 1.004. He is a juvenile. We noticed a few white spots on tail fin. Pretty suer is ich. He is still eating and swimming around. He is rubbing on aquarium going up and down on glass. How do we increase salt and to what level and to what temperature do we go and how to increase. We know they have no scale's. And skin is sensitive to medication. What can we do to get our baby puffy well.
