Exclamation Gill Fungus...What do I do?

Ok, so I just got a batch of bettas. 4 to be exact. All of them are healthy as far as activity, color, and everything else. but I have ONE that seems to have gill fungus. I didn't notice it right away because his head is white. I only realized it when he was looking at me and I saw something flapping in the 'wind' caused by his fins moving. He's got a good appetite and is energetic. But, what do I do to heal him? I've been doing a 100% water change about every 2 days and it's not really doing anything. I've dealt with 'rot' before, but NOT fungus....please help x.x

I'd suggest reposting in the disease section of the forum and filling in the form about tank size etc. :) You'll get more answers there.
For now I can only suggest keeping up with the water changes, keeping the heat up to 80-82F and trying an anti-fungal medication.

Are you sure it's fungus? Could it be a piece of a slime coat that came off and "flapping in the wind"? Is he breathing funny? Try to attach a photo of this fungus in question.

I...thought this was the medical area! lol. Oops!

Also, yes, pretty sure it's a fungus. It's too hard to get a picture of though because the fungus is white and where it is on his body is white, so it's really more of a texture difference that tipped me off and sadly the camera I have is NOT good enough to pick up individual textures x.x

I'll post over in the medical section though. Thank you!
