Looks like Cotton Wool. Same thing as Cotton Mouth, just in a different place. I used Pimafix, most people wouldn't suggest this, I am sure you could find a fungal treatment somewhere, that would work. I used Pimafix, before I came to this forum. I treated King, now all he has is a scar on his back. Also, keep his tank water clean, and add aquarium salt.
