Well I have to add that I had had a sad experience with something similar in my newly set up 80 gal. The fish got white spots and slight discoloration. At times it seemed to me that the spots also looked like cotton bits (fungus).
The neon and Guppy
population all died out. First were the guppies. I think the flock had had the disease before and it flared up in the new environment. Then I applied treatment. The neons died right after the treatment one after another. I thought my husband would kill me.
I survived but one of my beloved cories also died and two cherry barbs. The saddest part was the loss of baby angel fishes - 3. They struggled to the end but didn't make it. Some fishes survived, however. The golden gouramis had white spots, but they disappeared in a matter of two days. They also survived the treatment. The rest of the cories, surprisingly the younger ones had no signs of disease whatsoever! One of the female cherries was VERY BAD. But she survived and all the spots disappeared.
It is almost over now. Some fishes have poor fins but we have no more losses. I really do not know what bug caused this plague. It was terrible though. I couldn't function normally at that time, really. I wished we had a fish tank ambulance!
