Fungus?

So one of the Rasbora Het. Has some white protruding body fuzz or maybe slime???

I think its fungal but wanted another option.
The only changes to the tanks regimen ive made is the addition of DIY Co2 (test ran for 2 days at 1 bubble every 2 sec. For the last 2 days for 6hrs per day)

All peramiters normal ph-7.6, Amo-0, Nit-0, Nita-40ppm, Kh 89.5 (5drops)

The red areas to me would suggest bacterial (unless there was a lot of flashing). Bit hard to see it.

Fungus?

Have you got any carbon you can run? That may take it out. And usual water changes you would already know.

Can't help but wonder what the cleaner was thinking

Way to go having a cover I think. I'm getting much less evaporation here with ones. It's just Perspex which I'd love to replace with glass but it's above head height so doesn't matter too much.
