Ich or not?

Hey guys, picked up a free 45 bow from a friend and her remaining inhabitants last weekend. This angel has some strange white spots on it that don't appear to be ich to me. They just appeared today as I have been staring at these 6 fish since I transported them and never saw them before. The spots are only on the fins. They're raised and are shaped kind of like tiny grains of rice. As far as I know, ich is is circular, not elongated as these are...but I don't know if it CAN be elongated like this. Just want to make sure I know what it is before I start medicating/going to war.

Thanks in advance for any and all input!

It doesn't seem to be ich, but i'm not an expert. Can you get a clearer picture? also if you can get your water parameters, please reply with them!

Just did a 50% water change today. Didn't notice it before that. Tested my well water 0, 0, 0...I will try to get a clearer picture in the morning.

Okay! Hopefully that helps. Though, it could be another kind of parasite. We’ll see with a clearer picture, i suppose. Id suggest just closely monitoring your fish and keeping up with your water changes.

Can't really get a clearer pic...I used my bf's phone this morning so it's a smidge better, but we don't have any other cameras that would take really clear close ups.

They don't appear to be moving and don't appear to have multiplied since last night.Click image for larger version

I asked my friend who gave it to me if she has ever seen this before and she said she hasn't. She also asked if they could be eggs. There are 3 juvenile angels and 3 mollies...I don't think anyone laid eggs on the fish. Could I be wrong? Is it possible another juvy angel laid eggs on it??
