That doesnt look like ich to me. The trite reading is indicative of an uncycled tank and is causing all sorts of problems. You need a 50% water change immediatly followed by another one like it everyday till the trites disapear.

+1 with smaug - I too didn't see any ich - ich is spots that look like salt - this fish isn't able to swim normally. From what I've read in the past, nitrites can be even more harmful than ammonia in an uncycled tank so water changes will get rid of it.

Agreed with Smaug. Readings of nitrIte do suggest the tank was not cycled.

+1smaug. Daily water changes till your tank is fully cycled.
