Exclamation Fungal Infection!!!!

What I first thought was debris on Ares is actually fungus!!! :( I don't know how to treat this, so any help would be great!!

Temp- 78-80
And I do a 100% water change every 2 days.

Also the fungus things seem to detach and float away sometimes.
Ares is acting fine though...

100% water changes daily, followed by 1 teaspoon per gallon of premixed aquarium salt for 5 days, twice a day, and if infection has not cleared up by the fifth day, continue treatement for 3 more days...

This has always worked for me. Good luck.

Even if you dont see any anymore fungus on the fish before the fifth day, DONT STOP TREATMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The present fungus may have died off already, But fungus cysts will still remain on the fish until the fifth day, and if left untreated, the cysts will hatch and re infect the fish.
During treatment, i suggest u dont let Ares see any fish because it will stress him out...

Good Luck :)
