I don't like the looks of it. May be a infection. I would get the advice from some of the experts that post here. But at a minimum my guess is there will be a dip of some kind needed.

Could be Beggiatoa sp. infection, a pic underwater would make me certain because I don't know how it looks exactly above water. Almost invariably results in death.

If it is Beggiatoa best bet is to keep it in QT till it dies or, best case scenario, shows no symptoms whatsoever.
