Hypo or copper. The big white spot on the tail is a spike.

If it is ick there is no such thing as a fast cure. All fish will need hyposalinity treatment or a copper treatment in a qt tank . Leave the main tank is fish-less for 8 weeks . Quarantining all sw fish will assure this doesn't happen again.
