Maybe try the heat first before adding all kinds of stuff to your tank
Heat will help the parasite's life cycle to go faster.. Plus heat kills the parasite because it cant live in a too warm tank...

Hi, just to let you know I solved the white spot issue finding that the raising the heat to 83 worked, I lost all the Tiger Barbs tho, the shop said they will sort me out for the trouble so will see.
Thankyou all for your help and advice.
Will keep posted!!

One of the most effective treatment for white spot is to raise the temperature in the aquarium to at least 80 degrees. This speeds up the life cycle of the parasite and quickly makes it free swimming where it is then able to be treated by the medication. It should be noted that the medication is useless until the parasite has reached this stage in the life cycle. A good medication is something that contains Malachite Green. Be warned if your fish are scale less fish you will have to half the recommended dose. You also must remove your carbon filter as it will observe the medication. Keep repeating for at least ten to fourteen days.
