White Spot on Goldfish that doesn’t look like Ick

ASquidabs0727

Hello,
I have a 6yr old common goldfish in a 20g tank. She is the only animal in the tank. Ammonia 0. Nitrite 0. Nitrate 5ppm. Weekly 25% water changes with Seachem Prime to dechlorinate. She eats Omega One sinking pellets.

A couple weeks ago a white spot showed up on her lower fin. I’ve seen ick before in person and this does not look like it. I’m thinking it’s some type of fungus. It disappeared after a couple days so I’ve just been keeping a close eye on her. Yesterday another white spot showed up on same fin. This morning she was completely bottom sitting but perked up an hour later. She’s swimming around now, has an appetite, and is eating. However, I’m noticing more white spots.
Their hard to see and easier to see in person. It doesn’t have the salt look that ick does. I’m going to do another water change tomorrow even though I did one 4 days ago. I also have Kanaplex already so can treat with that if anyone agrees it’s fungal.
She also lost 1 scale recently… not sure if it’s related.
Thank you!
I’ve been doing research on tetra lifeguard and might use that since it treats for so many things
