Exclamation bands of white/grey on body..advice?

HI

My new girl seems to have an issue of sorts. She developed these wide bands of grey/white along her body. They kinda look like breeding stripes but much fatter and start near her and and go to her tail. Im not sure if its a fungus or columnaris or what. I can't really tell if the white is fuzzy or not. It was NOT there yesterday

She wasnt in the greatest shape when I got her, her color was gone and she has fin rot. Plus the ammonia in her cup tested to be about a 4.0. However, her body was one solid color of olive green. Now it has these funky bands.

She is active and eats like a pig.

Currently in 1.5 gallon QT
Not Heated
Temp: 75
Stress coat and AQ salt added

She looked like this when I got her, now she has these funky white bands


now





I'm gonna bypass filling out the form since I have only had her for 2 or so days.
