adf with white growth, fungal?
 
I had 2 adf's, one of which died randomly thismorning for unknown reasons. He had no signs of any growth, but now my other adf has a large white growth, which is getting larger, and has now reached his left arm and he cant move it (the arm also appears red/sore)... (it started on his lower back)... i just added melafix to the tank hoping to cure it, but was wondering if theres any idea on what it is or what to do,.. he floats along the top of the tank, having trouble swimming.

Heres a pic, its blurred but note some whiteness around his body / arm if u can see it...

Has he been wounded before? Fungus simply will not appear unless the spores enter the wounds which were left untreated.
