Something wrong with 1 of my clowns?

There appears to be a white mass on one of the lower fins of one of my clown fish. Is this Ich or something else?

I will try to take a better pic and post it. I have a question. Most of the pics I have seen of Ich have fish with small white dots. My clown now has 2 white spots but both are large (pea size) and look more like something attached to it. Could this be something else? I have 1 other clown showing no signs. 1 Flame angel showing no signs. 1 red lip benny showing no signs. I'm setting up my QT tank tonight anyway. Should I just move the 1 clown or all of my fish?

Something that big sounds like a fungus or something. Ich is about the size of salt grains

I agree it looks like fungus or bacterial. What are your water parameters? How long have you had the clown?
