Exclamation White stuff on fish! Please Help!

Any idea what this white stuff could be? It is all over him.

He is in a 2.5gal tank... No filter or heater. The water was changed 24 hours ago and has conditioner in it. If you need anymore information please ask. water temp is around 70-73 degrees F

It looks like columnaris to me. (A bacterial infection prevalent in poor water conditions.)

See this website for more info and treatment: http://www.flippersandfins.net/flexibacter.htm

I hope your fish gets better!

That could possibly be a fungus but funguses normally grow in concentrated tufts that look like cotton and not spread out like that but I dont know a lot about fungus infections.
