WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PUT HIM DOWN.

FIrst things first, the disease will be away from the fish, but it will still be in the tank whcih means the other inhabitants will still have a chance of catching it. Second, putting down a fish is a cowards way out. And third of all, it looks like fungus and fungus isnt to hard to cure. Just buy some medication at your fish store (there common and not expensive) and treat accordingly as the bottle says. Make sure you remove activated carbon while treating a tank with medication

i'll find a medication company for you, i saw one at the store the other day but i forget its name. Activated carbon is in your filter (the bag with the black coal like stuff) just remove the bag but let the filter keep running so there is still oxygen in the tank.

make sure its primafix, not melafix since melafix is anti-bacterial not anti fungal.

Does it look like cotton growing on your fish? Or is it the color of the fish and nothing is growing out of it

hmm, if it is growing on te fish then it is probably fungus. If it is the color of the fish, its probably stress or another disease. I think ammonia burns burned the skin causing an infection where fungus started to grow. Treat with primafix and if there are cuts and infections then treat with melafix as well.
