ADF with strange white "fungus" out of mouth

verohu

My ADF is not eating well and I noticed some white stuff hanging out of his mouth. Is this a fungus and is there anything I can do about besides taking him out my tank? My other ADF is doing well. I got him for Xmas and noticed he had those greyish spots on his body which my other ADF does not have. I thought it was maybe because he was a juvenile?
Hope anyone can help. I don't want him to suffer too much.

It looks more like his shed than a fungus to me. ADFs shed about once a week and very often will eat it. The spots are just his colouring.

Thank you for your help. The next day it was indeed gone and I thought the same...probably shedding but yesterday morning I found him dead on the bottom of my tank. So I guess something was going on but still don't know what! Thank you again for your reply.
