No, I have about 13 other fish or so in there. I do have a quarantine tank. I discovered that there was a corroded penny in the tank if it matters (I took it out)

Corroded pennies have nothing to do with ich although it may contain heavy metals which can stress and harm the fish. What are those fish you have?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Rainbow shark, tetras, bala shark, zebra danios, chineese algea eater, trumpet knife fish in another tank at the moment, and some little yellow fish I started out with.

I should probably add that he/she swims in the middle of the tank at the top. The white spots look like skin peeling off (is it possible it is just a wound from fighting because a crawfish bit the tip of his/her tail off)

Pictures will help. You should isolate the crayfish. Crayfish are known to consume small fish and attack larger ones. I'd use Melafix for now if those are suspected wounds. Pls monitor the BGK. Fungus can occur which is a secondary infection to wounds and can be difficult to get rid.
