Is This Ich? Help

    I just added this German Blue to my community tank and I noticed maybe 3 White spots on him. I was wondering if it looked like ich to anyone. If it is should I treat the whole tank for potential infection or should I buy a 5 gallon for him to be housed in while I medicate? I have a DG, Cory Cats, X-ray tertas, and a bamboo shrimp with the German Blue. Any medication recommendations for the community tank or individual? I can try for more pictures if needed.

    Does it look like salt flecks? Photos are such a bear to interpret .

    If it is ick, treat the tank.

    The dot on the side near his gills after further inspection seems to be slightly raised but the fin with the second largest white dot is constantly moving and is difficult to get a good look at. I got a few pictures with my flash of the German Blue. He pretty much refuses to show me his right side.
