Help with clownfish please...

I have two clownfish that are doing great in the DT. Have been there for nearly 6 months and as of the last month have been hosting in my torch. One of the pair is now showing a white spot on it's upper body as per the red circle in my pictures.

Can anyone id it and maybe a cure or fix?

SG 1.025
Temp 80.0
PH 8.2
Alk 2.3
Ammonia / Nitritre / Nitrate all are 0
Cal 410

Thanks...Steve

I am not sure that looks like ich...I thought ich is small white spots that appear randomly over the body. This seems different.

As of this morning that spot has all but disappeared. Actually tried to get a better picture but it seems to comfy in the torch to get out this morning. I just got a couple of quick glimpses and I can hardly see the spot. I'll keep monitoring him/her to see what happens.

Thanks...Steve
