I see this quite often on imported fish that have ammonia poisoning. I generally do a 75% WC for the first 3 days and use a combination of Melafix and Pimafix which has actually proven quite successful.
This condition can spread rapidly. It's best to isolate the fish by degree of severity as you can expect to lose the most severely affected specimens, regardless of treatment.
Good luck in your efforts. - Frank
P.S. Any chance you can reduce the physical dimensions of your image???
