I couldn't get a photo of her still enough to see the worms, so I tried a video. They are most apparently on the caudal fin and barbels of the albino cory. None of the other fish are showing symptoms of this strange white wormlike thing. I need to know if I should quarantine her quickly to keep it from spreading? What is it, since I can't come up with a diagnosis myself from the forum info. It appeared suddenly, and whatever it is seems to be eating the areas it is attached to. The fish is acting completely normal, surprisingly.
