Be on the safe side and treat for the possible ich.

Take him out and QT him for few days before the potential disease outbreak.

It's not it ich I know that for sure. Cause it's just a couple spots on his fin. Do u think it might be becAuse he's new in the tank? None of the other fish have it and they all are acting fine and eating well.

And I would put him into my qt tank but it is currently occupied by a trigger and a few damsels.

It's not ich cause I know what that looks like. And I also can't use medicine in the tank cause my puffer is super sensitive to any thing that goes in the tank.

I'll try to get a pic but the angels constantly moving.......but u think it might be cause he's stressed?

The other fish that was added with him at the same time is doing great! But the angels the only one that has the spots on his fins and is only like 4-5 little spots

I think stress if the color is fading in certain arears. I just lost a Koran 2 days ago with the same thing. He was eating well and very active for 2 weeks. Color started fading away except for his tail fin. He was in isolation the entire time. No matter what I tried to do he still got worse, then died.
Good luck. I hope he makes it
