That doesn't look like fungus to me. Fungus is a cottony growth and I don't see it looking like cotton. More like columnaris to me. Medications for external bacterial problems should help. Pls do it in another tank. You have a newt and you don't know how the medications are just going to affect him.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

he should move the newt in case the other fish have the disease, but arent showing signs. Treat the fish with primafix and melafix then since blues diagnosis was bacterial not fungal. Also anti-bacteria medicines can kill your beneicial bacteria causeing you to cycle again. Since your getting a 10 gallon, move your newt there (temprorarily) and treat the main tank, also move the fry since they are still weak

Before you treat your fish, be sure to remove your newt or rather, get a new tank and treat your platy there. I would not risk trying to treat the main tank if I were you.

I Just took them out of a fisk bucket and i still have to clean them since last time they were on they were in a salt water tank.
Are these the right kind?
