Could you post a picture?

I think it could be as Tropicana said, breeding stars.

Ich doesn't usually start there, it is usually on the body and fin regions.

You do know that with the 2 new fish you are overstocked. This will be dangerous for all fish, because the water will quickly become polluted.

Before treating for ich I would make sure it isn't breeding stars.

I am sorry he didn't make it.

Yes it is 10 gals per gf. From what you said I understood it to be 3 fish already in there and then you added 2 more, that would make 5 fish in a 29 gallon tank.
