Humu Humu has frosty fins

My Humu Humu Triggers fins look kinda funny. They are not damaged or nothing like that it's like his fins are frosted or something. I don't think it's ick because I don't see anythig on his body and his beavior is normal no itching or darting and he eats fine. The other fish in the tank look fine also. Not sure if I gave a good discription of what's going on but all I know is his fins look different. Not sure of a better way to discribe it...I've seen a lot of cases of ich but it does not look quite like that. Any ideas what it could be?

Be careful of the frosting on the fins. You up on marine velvet/oodinium? Looked like powder sugar coating, first seen on the pecs .I had a breakout and my fish were just as greedy as ever.
