    If it looks like mold (whitish, fluffy-looking) it is fungus. You have to go get a medicine for body fungus. You also have to keep its water very clean. Poor water conditions most likely caused this condition. You need to test your water for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate, regularly, or at least be sure to do a partial water change and gravel vacuum weekly.

    Definately sounds like Ick. It's also a very deadly disease to have in your tank, and can kill everything in it now, and any new fish in the future if the tank is not cleaned of it. There are good medicines for this to buy at local pet stores. I also used one that turned the water completely blue. I usually lost all the fish, unfortunately, but it cured the water for the next ones.

    Sounds like it might be Ick. Buy Ick-out from the pet shop and treat the water in the tank with the fish in it. The treatment when I used it 30 years ago, turned the water blue and stained the aquarium but it got rid of the white fuzzy stuff on the fish called Ick.
