Ram Fungus

See attached pics (sorry for the quality, my hospital tank is round and he won't sit still)

My Ram had this "zit" on his forhead (between the eyes) for a while. About 6 months. He was kept separate from my main tank, but after so much time, I was about to think it was nothing....

Well, last night it "burst" open. Now there is a tuft of cotton on his head. Is it common fungus that can be cured with Primafix? That is what I am using on him now....

I question it because it didn't happen quickly, it was like a cyst for a long time, then popped.

Thanks for any help you can give.

He could have had a parasite the exited the host. Treat with Binox per directions. Here's a link to a sticky in this forum.
