I know this is late but I have no idea what the white stuff could be. I had a similar problem when I used Stresscoat. I had stringy white stuff hanging off my betta and when I switched conditionere it stopped. I see you use TopFin so I don't know if it could be that or not. I hope you figured out what the problem was.
