Fungus will involve white/grey strands growing on broken slime coats or infected injuries. Fungal infections are hard to come by unless the fish has been mishandled. Your likely issue is columnaris or bacterial infection. Bacterial infections are more common than most people realize. What did you use to treat? The misdiagnosis by most companies seem to prompt treatments for fungal infections to cure most bacterial infections. One sure way to distinguish between bacterial and fungal infection is looking the sample skin under a microscope.
