It doesnt sound like ich at all usually ich covers the body is small granules. A picture would help. It might have something to do with the water changes. I think you might be doing it to often and recycling the tank each time you do especially because you have a filter. I would stop the anti fugal until you know what it is because from what I can tell its not ich.
