I think my loaches have ich

A few days ago i noticed that my 3 clown loaches were swimming funny. They were rubbing against things. I quickly isolated them. Now I notice that there are very small spots on them which are easily visible on their tail fins. I have started adding salt to their quarintine tank, and will start a ich treatment tomorrow. Do I need to treat my large tank also. All the other fish seem fine. It is a 72 gallon with 2 guppies, 2 gouramies, 1 mollie and 2 plecos. The plecos are pretty new and may have been what caused the problems but they seem healthy. I got them about 2 weeks ago.
