I agree... Normally, the eyes and fins are the first to show signs of ammonia burn because they are more vulnerable. The eyes are clear and fins look fine.

It looks like a bacterial or a fungal infection to me (which could have happened during shipping). If the salt doesn't work and you see the infection spreading, you will need to treat it with an antibiotic (hopefully in a quarantine tank).
