Is this anything?

Yesterday I noticed that I had Ich on a few fish. Not bad though, just 2-4 spots on a few fish.
I removed my snail and prepped for treatment. Lowered the water slightly for when the temp was raised. It's sitting at 28 right now. I also added jungle ick guard.

It worked overnight the fish lost the spots.
Do I add any more? Or that was enough and keep doing water changes. I was told 2 w/c a week by LFS. I trust you guys though ...

I was happy that the spots were gone but now two of my fish have a weird marking on there back.
There's nothing that they could of really rubbed against to injure itself (just a piece of bogwood).

bigger view here ...

it doesnt look like an injury,... in fact it doesnt look like ich either, i say just keep a eye on it. like if it expands or your fish seems less energetic or stops eating then worry about it, for now just keep an eye on it, it just could be the result of the ich treatment on that particular species.

No the ich is gone already.
They had the white spots.

I've seen it before on the red wag platy.
It got skinny and eventually died despite everything I tried.

Hoping this is just a fluke thing!
The fish that was transported in the same bag had dropsy and I took back instantly
