It definately looks like fungus!

if it was white spot, then there would be more than 1 spot and it wouldn't be that big....

i would move him to a Quarantine tank ( if you have one ) and treat him with fungal meds from the shop....

Hope this helps! :D

It won't hurt the other fish if you put it in the tank. ( it would probably help the other fish from getting it )

i have done it before and it didn't affect my fish, just made my water a little bit dirty and cloudy.....so i would suggest doing a 50% water change after the fish get cured... :D

hope this helps :D
