disaster in tank, dead clown.

My tank is a disaster. I think there is some disease that is killing my fish one at a time. I've checked my water, ammonia 0, nitrite 0. PH is 7.5. I recently thought I would move my clown loaches into a different tank. They were very stressed from this so I moved them back. (Into the tank with the disease) Then one started acting strange. I noticed they had ick. I raised the temperature to 85 and added salt. One tablespoon per 10 gallons. The other two don't show any signs of ick today. I'm so worried. This tank has never had a problem until recently and it's been running for 3 years. I'm looking for any thoughts on what to do to keep these two remaining clown loaches from dieing.
