It could be cotton wool disease...I'm fighting some of that right now myself, and 2 of the 4 that have it, started out like kinda like you are describing, the other 2 started at the mouth. I'm having a hard time finding you a pic at the moment because all the pics I find are more advanced ones.
I had brought 2 home from the pet store with it, not knowing...I just did not look at them close enough, soon enough. by the time I caught it, they were in the tank a couple days already and it spread.
If it does turn out to be that, I was told to treat it with fungus medicine, which did not work, then read just last night somewhere that it is a bacteria, not a fungus, so should be treated with coppersafe I think it was?
I would take a pic of mine for you, but they are in a hospital tank right now where I can't get pics since it's a rubermaid container with an air pump, heater, cycled rock etc. Best I could do on short notice as it was obviously spreading fast.
Can you get a pic of yours to post up?
