Sick Clown Loaches Please Help!

My Bala Sharks and Clown loaches have kind of a whitish appearance. This isn't ich and it's not like a cotton fungus... it's just a whitish appearance that can be on fins but is also on the sides of the fish. The Fish are in a 220 gallon tank.

What medications are what doses do you suggest? Should I raise the temperature or add salt, MarOxy, MelaFix? Or some combination of things mentioned or something else. I would like to start treatment tonight so if I could get a quick answer I can run out to the store. Thanks.
