UPDATE:
So I've done 2 full courses of treatment with the Furan-2 (4 days per course with 25% water changes every 2 days). The Congos are cleared up. One Boe is completely cleared up and one has just a tiny spot left on his lip but the third one still has some fuzz on his lips but it is MUCH better. Should I continue with more Furan-2 or just clear the meds out with water changes and keep on eye on it?

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I would say continue until there are no more symptoms. Also, if you haven't already, raise the temperature, as this will speed the life cycle of most bacteria.

If it's Columnaris you actually want lower temps. Slower growth=less to treat.

This is the song that never ends...

I've left my tank at it's current temp of 77F.

I'll continue with the meds.
