The numbers may help us to narrow it down. But in the interim, I think this is a fungus, and I would get it out with the water change as Cassandra suggested. Aim the siphon at it and it will ikely pull out. I've never had something like this, but i have had similar fungus problems from wood, and nearly lost fish so I wouldn't leave it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Just wanted to say that I haven't had a chance to check my water parameters yet. My daughter has been sick the last couple of days. I have only gotten 6 hrs of sleep in the last two days. I have looked at the spots that the "fungus" was it has seemed to come back :/ not as bad but none the less still there. Torromow I should be able to get a chance to check the lvls. I have noticed that in my water I have some white looking parasites I am guess I have no clue what they are just like little white worms and I mean little. The first time I saw one I thought I was seeing things. Any clue what there are?

I had something like this, it appears on rotting food that i forget to take out, also on parts of my plants that are rotting. my trumpet snails eat it though, so its never really bothered my fish and has never been around for more than a couple of days before something eats it.
