    I'm sorry your fish are ill.
    Can you post a pic? It might help the other members ID wants going on.

    so sorry to hear that :(

    i'd go ahead and start with a water change, it never hurts and some fresh water may get him feeling better. a picture would help confirm, but for the time being if you have a quarantine tank then you should probably transfer the fish that have fungus into it, since you'll want to start treatment. if you can confirm that it's fungus then i'd recommend treating with maracyn (just plain maracyn, not maracyn 2 or TC, those are for other diseases), i've had good luck with it thus far. but definitely post a picture and try to confirm the disease before treating with a medication, sometimes they can do more harm than good!
