Crypto is just another term for saltwater ich, you know that, right?

Well... As far treating it.. I think copper treatments are recommended.

I'd tell them to be cautious of their tank, other fish may develop it. Then they'd have to leave their tank vacant for 6-8 weeks for it die off.

That fish doesn't look like it has ich IMHO. Has the water in the qt been tested? How did you acclimate the fish?

It could be, but it isn't definite. One of the spots resembles ich, the other just looks weird. I don't see what else it could have though.
