No, he does not have ick apparently or he would be better. The tank is a bit small for this species, which requires a minimum of a 50 gallon tank, so the environment may not suit him. Make sure his water quality is excellent. If by faded spots you mean he has washed out areas on his body, this could be bacterial, environmental or parasitic. Again, improve his environment but also try All-In-One Remedy.
