Over the weekend I noticed 2 white spots on my betta. I did some research and think it's fungal so per the online site I found I have been using aquarium salt and changing 80% of his water daily, redosing the salt as I do. Today is day 3 of doing that. Well today I notice a white spot on the mouth of one of my black skirt tetras which are in a different tank. I used the same gravel vac in each about 1 hour apart before I saw what was going on with my betta. Can anyone help confirm what this is? This is my first experience with an illness, my betta has never been sick and my separate 29 gallon tank has only been up and running about 2 months. I'm really worried I just made a huge mistake and put everyone at risk.

Betta tank temp 78.5
Nitrates 10
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Ph 7.2

29g tank temp 74.5
Nitrates 5-10
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Ph 7.2

My betta is by himself in his tank with fake plants and 1 large marimo moss ball.

In my 29g I have 6 black skirt tetras, 3 neons, 4 ghost shrimp, 4 corys, 1 nerite snail, 1 pagoda snail, 1 SAE, 2 amazon sword plants, 1 madagascar lace plant, 1 crypt and 1 java fern.

Columnaris

I am testing if this will turn into a link, if it does, that might have treatment. (It did)

Looks like Columnaris from what I have ever seen, I haven't had it, but I've seen many pictures.

Thank you for confirming my suspicions. The links are very helpful, I will read the materials and decide what to do next.
