Stress Spots

What do stress spots look like? I think I have ich in my tanks, but I am not 100% sure just yet. I really hope it isn't. Does anybody have any pictures of stress spots?

For some background on this topic check out my 125g build thread.

Thank you very much!

They look like faded spots, maybe 1/8 - 1/4 in diameter. Not all fish will show them. You usually only see them on some tangs and foxface/rabbitifsh. There is no mistaking stress spots with ich.
