problems with my purple tang

I've got a purple tang I put in my main tank after a 4 week QT during all of which it was perfect). The next day it started getting white spots...I
think parasites...and today it developed something new I've never seen before. I've posted some pics. it's round and white.I don't know how else to describe it. TIA

Dave

Here's a another pic.actually the same one, just not cropped. She seems perfectly healthy and happy.

Thanks again

by the way: PH 8.2
Temp 80
Amm 0
Nitrite 0

I only see one pic and it is tough to tell what I am looking at. try putting a few in your gallery. Is this a red sea purple tang?

I honestly dont know if it's a Red Sea Tang. It wouldn't let me post two pics in the same post....here's the second.

Possibly a fungal infection. Has it changed in size?

If it is a fungal infection or bacterial (I can not tell by the pic) check out the links.
