Weird white stuff on my blue tang (dory fish)

My blue tang has this white stuff growing on the right side of its fin. Does anybody know how to get rid of it ? Thanks

Is it scratching? Are you sure it is a growth and not losing scales?

Do you have a qt/hospital tank?
I'm not sure about issue(oodinium/marine ich seem likely but need better pics),but with corals in tank you won't be able to add many good meds if we do diagnose.
How long has fish been looking like this,
How long has tank been established, what size,
Who else is in tank,
Anyone new?

I do not have a quarantine tank, I know very dumb of me 😩 I think it must have started yesterday and I have had my tank for about 3 years. I have 2 clowns, 2 damsels, 1 cardinal, 4 peppermint shrimp, 1 six line wrasse, and 1 watchman goby, I have bought anything except for some scarlet legged crabs and that was about 4 weeks ago

Better pics would go along way!
I know how fast they are(mine is over 4 years).
Tank size and what do you feed the tank/fish?

Hippos will eat anything!
They need vegatables /algae.
Is nory available in your area?
Many offer fresh vegs.
Look into selcon to supplement his diet.
If we are lucky it may just be HLLE!
Do you run carbon on your tank?
Here is a selcon link(DEFINATELY WORTH BUYING).


American Marine Selcon
It along with calurpae definitely cured a sailfin of HLLE for me(took a year).
