It looks like it to me, it's easier to see from a side view since it often attacks the fins.

Raise the temperature to 83(I even raise it to 86 sometimes) slowly and add aquarium salt. Ick will disappear and appear gone, but it's actually reproducing in the gravel so make sure to siphon everyday. If after a week it doesn't seem to be helping copper safe works really good, but snails and plants must be removed.

A bare bottom tank would be a great idea, so there is no missing Ich in the gravel :)

I bought some Kordon Rid ICH plus... what are your opinions using that?
