Getting worse?

So i was checking on Joshy tonight and it looks like his fins got worse.
Hes eating and swimming around at the bottom and his head area is grey and it looks like his gill area is reddish. I was checking his his fins and it looks like they are now whiteish and grey. The white is hard to see and they are very very tiny "spots" but its all over his fins and its not in random places. I don't think its ich. Also the tips of one of his fins is turning white. Ahg! And his scales always scare me bcause they are very defined and always look like they are pineconing slightly.
Is there anything I can do for him? What does he have?

Pineconing of the scales is one of the signs of dropsy. Could you take a picture of him? I don't know much about ick, I've never had to deal with it before, but I'm pretty sure it's the little white dots.

*sigh* He's still the same if not worse and I dont know what to do about it. Ive tried salt baths and cleaned his tank really really realllly well. Is this Ich? The ends of his dorsal fins are white and starting to curl a little. and now hes starting to rest at the bottom more and hasnt eaten anything all day

I can't really see. I don't know much about ick. So hopefully someone can help you out there. I'm sorry I can't help you. :( I hope he gets better!
