Cannot tell if there actually is ich but those few fish are probably stressed out by aggression issues. Ich is not a major problem with Malawi cichlids, Ich is mostly a symptom of bad water quality. Decent water quality with regular water changes solves most simple disease problems. You tank might be getting too crowded which might lead to lower water quality, but a crowded tank also tends to diffuse aggression problems.

Hi thanks.
what do you think those white spots on him are? you can see he is battered as he has been fighting alot with the alfa and at times managed to make him back off he managed to breed but the price was heavy all his fins are damaged it seems
still those white spots concern possibly is getting crowed

I'm with noki, can't confirm ich. Are the white spots raised or depressed? Look like they might be missing scales from fighting? I would reduce stock, the tank does look very crowded and you have a lot of large species in the tank.
