I think my Clowns contracted Ich/Velvet Help!!

I woke up today and looked into the tank and saw that almost all my loaches have a film of white on them. Some have spots but the biggest one has a thin film of white over him. Is this Ich or is this Velvet? I know both are killers and I plan to medicate as soon as possible, but they are in there with oscars and I would hate to have the oscars go through treatment even tho they arent sick. I've delt with Ich before but this seems strange to me, maybe because this is the first time i've had loaches. If someone could help me I would be Incredibly grateful. Thanks In Advance.
