It really looks like ich to me, though it is hard to say with the motion going on in the photo.

Is there any 'lumpiness' that isn't white in the area?

Yes it looks like a burn blister (holds skin color but is semi-translucent) the entire 'joint' is swollen all the way around between the body and tail. I'll try to get a better picture here soon. thanks for the reply

I got five of these at the same time from my LFS I had been watching the tank for awhile (a week or two) trying to decide on what kind of tetra to get. In that time my LFS didn't have any new shipments and all his other fish are healthy as well as the other 4 I bought the same day. He was in my 55g (see my profile) all the other fish are okay. Now in 10g med/breeding/ planted tank.
I hope all this info helps
