It looks worse in the pictures than with the naked eye. (not that it makes it any better!)

Oh yes, and what do we treat with?

So far, what I'm finding is Maracyn. However, given it's a 55 gallon tank and affecting at least 3 fish (probably 4 or more) - I may need to treat the whole thing vs hospital tank.

Wife is upset... can anyone help?
(sorry, I know it hasn't been long but I'm worried my subject line may have not be the best to get attention - I was trying to be accurate)

I always thought columnaris was more a very distinct and continuous patch of white or gray and the rest of the fish looked completely normal. Fish eating and activity normal.

Not sure what that is...but I have only had "maybe-columnaris" once on one fish.

They seem to be acting normal.

But yeah, a lot of what I'm reading about Columnaris doesn't seem to apply to them.

I've turned up the temp (was 75.7) and added salt. It's due for a 50% water change tomorrow.

Turns out it was just a fungus.

I used the Jungle anti-fungus fizzy tablet while waiting to get a large bottle of Pimafix (the next day). Dosed with Pimafix (accidently double-dosed each day) for 3 days and the fungus was completely gone.

Thanks for the feedback though.

(what's funny is I went to a Petsmart, showed their fish guy the picture and he said it looked like a fungus and recommended Pimafix)
