Just to be sure the hospital tank didn't have water quality issues I tested nitrates, nitrites and ammonia about an hour ago and all were fine. In fact, slightly better than the main tank she came out of almost a week ago. I don't know what has got a hold on this fish but I'm afraid she is not long for the world.

Well, she died last night.
The odd thing is that she had appeared to have made a full recovery over the past week. The white patch of fuzz was completely gone. The bloating had completely disappeared. She had stopped hanging around on the bottom and was eating like a horse. I was so confident that she was better that I actually put her back in the main tank two days ago.
Then I get up this morning and find her dead on the bottom of the tank with absolutely nothing visibly wrong with her.
I sure hope this is not the way it usually goes with sick fish.
Anyway, thank you all for all your help and advice.
