Exclamation Columnaris?

Hello everyone!

So, about a week ago i bought my first three axolotls. I got one black one from a breeder and two from a pet store. The two from the pet store have some weird white sport at their tail and in their gills. I am really afraid that this is columnaris.

Does anyone know what this is and if this is harmfull for them?

(Some extra information)
My water levels are stable and i think they are okay.
(pH 7,2 - kH 3 - Fe 0,05 mg/l - NH4 0 - NH3 0,009- Cl 0 - NO2 0 - NO3 8 mg/ml)

Here are some pictures of Jon (the black one wich i think s healthy) Hodor (the green one) and Cercei ( the yellow one )

Thanks for the help!

That looks like irradophores. It looks like normal markings. I see nothing wrong with them in the pictures.
