Wow.. That's odd. This looks like a fungal infection- I'm not too good on those, so keep looking for more comments.

I'm very sorry you have to deal with this. D:

Awww... It looks like cotton wool disease to me. Poor little guy might be stressed or the water is in poor condition if it is. :( To treat Cotton wool disease then add 4 teaspoons of sea salt per gallon (Espon salt? sorry not the best speller). Hope this helps. :)
