That fuzzy stuff may be fungus. You may want to QT him for a while in warm water so he doesn't spread it to the frogs and do a water change in the big tank.

He passed as soon as I moved him into the 5 gallon to QT him :'( I can't believe that happened so suddenly. I was just taking pictures of him before bed last night and he was fine.
