Agree with discontinuing the freshwater dip but ONLY because you are going down the fungal diagnosis route. Freshwater dips are very effective for parasites, flukes, velvet, etc (non bacterial/fungal). I haven't found many (if any) marine biologists in the field that discount the practice. It's one of many, including hyposalinity, herbal additives, pharmaceutical products that are used. Each causes stress in the fish. While many who don't like it will point to the fact that the fish dies as the cause while they don't use the same rational when fish die from hypo or any other treatment. In those cases the fish was just too sick to make it through the treatment not the treatment it's self.

While I did the 1st dip, I was sure I sore 1 long thin thing in the water (worm), the white spot on the fish was gone. As you said I am going down the fungus line. While I gave my fish a dip for the 1st 20 seconds she appeared stressed; however, after that she seemed to be ok. What I did was I floated the fresh water in the main tank so she still had her familiar environment. She seemed to be ok (not loving it but ok). Currently she is fine, fins up eating and she now comes to me for a kiss. Both her and her partner visibly miss each other. They may want to make eggs once they are reunited.
