Exclamation Cobwebby Stuff??

So my fish has this stuff that looks like cobwebs all over him, and it's clumping his fins so he can't swim and he's not really eating either. At first I wasn't too worried, since he had a 'beard' of this stuff shortly after I got him. Then, a few days away, I noticed a ring on one of his sticky fins (that's the name, right?) and today I found it all over him.
I don't think it's algae, since it's not in the tank and it's not green. It looks like cobwebs - clear and invisible until you get the right angle, and you can see hints of silvery-gray giving it a shape.
Any ideas??? I dunno if I can get a pick, since he's in a tight spot at the bottom of the tank, mostly.

Can you get us a picture? It sounds like columnaris which will need to be treated but we need to be sure
