Try googling Columnaris for photos. Sounds like that may be what you're dealing with. If so, you can treat with Maracyn/Maracyn 2 together, or kanamycin. Gradually reduce your temp to about 76; columnaris thrives in higher temps. Increase aeration during treatment as well.

If it is columnaris, melafix/pimafix won't effectively treat it. If you see that it seems to be spreading, I'd do a large wc and start the maracyn/maracyn 2 treatment. You could also run carbon for a few hours to completely remove the melafix/pimafix before starting the maracyn combo. You can also use kanamycin for columnaris.

Try googling columnaris for some photos and see if it resembles what you're seeing.

HTH and good luck...
