Spots on the fins is an indicator of malnutrition. Feed him a few times per day, see how fast those dots go away. Marine ICH should appear on his body.

Just keep in mind that a healthy fish will not get ICH, so I'd say there some something not visible on him to begin with. And, what proceedure are you using? I recommend Hypo Salinity.
