debris in fin

This morning I cleaned the surface on sand bed and did a water change. After I finished I noticed white spots on the fins of one fish. I am pretty sure it wasn't there before I started. It is quite noticable. I think it is debris from him swimming in the water while it was stirred up. Anyone else have this problem? What should I do? I tried to net him with no luck.

The white spots are almost all gone this morning. He is still very active and eating anything I put in the tank. I have had a uv sterilizer on the tank for a year now. I haven't had any problems and I'm glad this seems to be getting better on it's own.
