New fish...ICH & Fin Rot???

I just received this guy in the mail today, and I was taking a few pics of him and noticed some odd stuff on him that I'm not sure if its normal or not...

1. He has black outlining his fins that I didn't even notice until I saw the pics I took. Is this fin rot?

2. There are a few white looking dots near his caudal fin. It almost looks like it may be iridescence, but I can't really tell...should I be worried about these spots?

doesn't look like finrot, probably just natural coloring. I can't really see the white dots in the photos, are they the size of salt granules?

Right at the base of his caudal in the second pic. They may be iridescent spots and I'm just freaking out for no reason...I'm paranoid about anything with my fish. >.<
