Update:
So I got the temp up to 86F yesterday and all the spots are gone. Gonna keep it like this for another 10 days. But...
This morning I fed him and left the room to get ready for school, and when I came back there was a hole in the middle of his bottom fin (not sure what it's called)!! And the missing piece was lying on a plant in his aquarium!! Is this characteristic of fin rot or something else? All his plants are soft, not prickly. And his water parameters are still fine. I'm going to do a 30% water change when I get home anyhow.
Other than that he looks great. He's active and playful. He doesn't seem stressed, although he does rub himself on things occasionally, probably because of the ich. I'm worried that when I get home he'll be missing even more pieces of his tail and fins.
Would it be helpful if I posted pics later?
Also, where can I get Kordon products?

That is probably from the fin rot he has. I have had that happen to fish before who had fin rot issues and it ended up growing back just fine. Just continue to keep an eye on him and let us know if anything else changes.
Yeah, the rubbing is because of the ich. It should subside.
Pictures are always helpful. If you can post a few pictures, please do.

When I got home, his hole was gone?? But it looks like the edge of his ventral fin is torn. His tail fin doesn't look so much shredded now as chopped. I did a 30% water change, cleaned the filter a bit and trimmed the plants. Do I need to remove the carbon cartridge from my filter while I am treating with salt or is that only if I use meds?

Here are my pics. One is from when I first got him, and the other 3 are from just before the water change. Let me know what you think!

Update 2:
The water temp has been at 86-88F for 4 days now and I've been doing 30% water changes every day. There are no more ich spots and his fins haven't deteriorated anymore. He also made a bubble nest yesterday, so I'm confident he's feeling better. I will update again if anything changes, or at the end of the treatment. I'm going to keep the heat up for 10 more days (til Feb 20).
