So earlier today I noticed my fish has white/greyish "fluff" like stuff all over his body and fins. I just noticed it today and it almost looks like dust. It just hangs off his body. I read on some other sites that it could be a fungus. Anyone know what this could be and how to cure it?
I was going to put my fish together in a divided 5.5 gal today but now I'm only going to put my new one until I resolve this problem.
