sounds like ick to me.

Here is a thread that talks about common treatments.

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=7

If you search Ick or sometimes spelled ich here you should find many threads on possible solutions.

If you get some garlic juice you could try soaking food in this to help.

Is anything stressing this fish? What are you ammoinia and nitrite levels?

What have you been fedding the tang?

freshwater dip could help but the stess on the fish in trying to catch it could make things worse.

Are these spots getting more numbeious?
