Harlequin rasbora fungus? Updated

Hebrewhammer

I have had these Rasbora for almost a month and about two weeks after getting them I noticed a small white spot on the fishes mouth that looked like fungus. I treated the tank with general cure and erythromycin but I'm still noticing the white spot on like 2 of the Rasbora ( about the same as before). I fear to keep treating the tank because I also have some kuhlI loaches which I heard are sensitive to medication.

I also have a Betta and some guppy in the tank and everyone else seems fine besides the fungus looking spot on the Rasbora.

I tested the tank water today just to be sure and the nitrates were high.

Ph 7.5-7.6
Temp 78 f
Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 80

If you don't want to treat the whole tank with something stronger, quarantine the diaspora in a hospital tank and treat separately.

I posted a thread about this white stuff on my rasboras mouth a few weeks ago and it hasn't really changed much but I did a water change today and noticed a whitish spot on another rasbora. Is this fungus?

20 gallons
Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 40ish

Stocking is 12 rasbora
6 kuhlI loaches
1 Betta
4 guppy fry
Various cherry shrimp and ramshorn snails

I treated the tank with maracyn for the full duration and did a water change and put in carbon and today which is about two days later I notice one of my fish looking like this.

Welp I decided to get a hospital tank and transferred all the rasbora there just in case and began treatment with furan 2 and kanaplex. Today will be my second day of treatment.
