Is this Ick?

I just brought this beauty home. I fell in love she was so pretty and tried to bite me through her cup. But she has this spot.......

She is moving today from her awful cup at Petco into a 2.5 gallon long heated tank....The filter I bought doesn't fit so I need to exchange it.

I've treated the water with Stress Coat (A water conditioner that is also supposed to help heal skin problems and help them replace their slime coat.)

She isn't in it yet.....she is getting used to the warmer water.

Anyway - here are two not great pictures of her. The white spot is infront of her dorsal fin. She also has two black spots.

The white spot is smooth - not fuzzy looking. If it IS ick - how do I treat? Will the stress Coat help - or bettafix which I also have.

Just went and looked at pictures of ich.....this doesn't look like it....any ideas about what it is or whether it is just her coloring? (They had a few marbled fish in)

It's a little difficult to tell from the pictures but that doesn't look like ick to me. It looks like she's just got that white patch on her. Odd coloring indeed!

Thanks for looking. I'll try to get better pictures of her tomorrow in the light.

She is opalescent pinkish peach and sometimes the white spot looks opal-y blue.

I hope it is just her coloring, but bought some aquarium salt just in case.....
