Please help identify! Columanris or Fungus!

Hello! My beautiful, butterfly eared betta is sick! I came home today and saw that he was in awful condition. I think it was a bad otocinclus from local pet store that gave him the disease. The oto died a couple of days ago!

I need help indentifying what disease this is so i can buy proper medicine. I put him in a hospital tank with some melafix!

Thank you

Poor guy. He is holding on but I don't know what to do. He looks pale and larger patch of his scales is missing color. Cosmos is my precious betta!
