Is this ich?

Cielo is not acting any different than normal. 3 gallon, temp is ~76-78, amm 0, -ites 0, -ates ~5. I just noticed this today and am not sure if it is an ich granule or just something that got stuck to him while swimming around.

You can see it on his fin (his left our right) sticking up in the first pic. And kind of a head on shot of it in the second pic. Is it something I should worry about or just keep an eye on? He is not itching and I don't see any signs of anything similar anywhere else on his body.

I can't tell. Isn't ich the one that turns gold if you shine a flashlight on it.. or is that velvet?

I would keep an eye on it for now.

Velvet is the gold stuff. Ich is the little sugar-like granules.

Looks just like part of his fin to me....Ich will look more like someone sprinkled salt all over your fish. It wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on it, though I don't think its anything to worry about, especially if hes acting perfectly normal :)

It is hard to say if that is ich, I would say it would be a concern moreso if you notice more spots on the body. Keep a close eye on it for now though just in case.
