That, my friend, would be fungus of some sort if I'm seeing it correctly. Don't worry about it, it's harmless. :)

Do you mean the whitish somewhat "fuzzy" stuff? Or the distinct "dots?"

By the way, not all fungus is harmless. There are many species, and some is highly toxic. Not saying this is here, just a caution.

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]

This type should be harmless. If it was harmful, the fish would most likely be dead, if not sick already.
