That doesn't look like anchor worm. I have dealt with anchor worm many times over the yrs.
I have seen and dealt with cases similar to this one, I am just not remembering if it was parasitic or fungal. Without the ability to examine the fish in person it is near impossible for me to say.
Hang in there a bit longer, I have pulled out my research books and am searching for it now. In the mean time, if you have the ability to move the affected fish to quarantine I will strongly suggest doing so asap, but do not go out and start picking through meds just yet. If you treat with the wrong med you can make the situation worse and prolong the time in which to properly treat it.
Can you post water params for the tank? (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH) Water chemistry can usually lend some answers. Also, the more information you can provide about the fish and the tank the faster we can come up with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Size of tank, filtration, maintenance, tank mates (what species and how many of each), live plants, etc. Every little thing plays a part.
