Disease prevention!

This morning as I was doing my morning check on the guys, I noticed that Romad has light fuzz on his head and nose, now this can be dust or something but I rather be safe then sorry.
And what really tipped me off to he might be coming down with something is he also has a protruding white dot on the base of his tail, on his body, that was there yesterday morning and survived a water change and didn't fall off.

He's not acting sick...

What should I give him for disease prevention?

Oh and I dunno if this matter's but Tex has like red sores on his head, like scales missing or (hate to say this) ammonia burns.
Their not fresh so I dunno if they scabbed over or are still open...can I give him something to help?

This is most likely a common fish disease known as ich. It's a parasite that shows up on fish as small white dots. Don't worry it's every easy to cure. First of all turn the temperature in your tank to around 84-86F. The parasite can't survive at these temperatures. Also add some aquarium salt around a table spoon for every 5 gallons. Leave the temp up until you haven't seen any white dots for at least 4 days. This will most likely take care of the problem, but if it persists there are medications sold at pet stores that work as well.
