Alright so I had my tank set up for about a week heater, filter et cetera before I put my baby Ichiru (with all the floating of the cup et cetera) into the new aquarium. Hes only been in there 5 or 6 hours but I just noticed he's more sluggish and covered in white spots. Is this Ick ich?

My hospital tank currently is full so should I just keep him in his ten gallon and treat the whole thing??
What I have for ich/ick treatments:
AQ salt
Lifeguard all in one treatment

You can see what I think may be ick/ich right by his eye/gills not his scaling....

And now there is those on his fins.
