Fungus or columnaris

So I know I posted about the parva rainbow she isn't better still has the growth by her gill but still swims and eats like a pig so not sure what to do but I noticed a small white fuzzy looking patch on my bosemani, he eats and swims crazy as well, I don't want to give up the hobby but I can't go through another Case of this either, I lowered the tank temp to 75, I don't have any meds on hand except rid ich + and salt which I know i can go half dose and not kill my plants but I'm not sure what I should do here's a couple pics.

Looks like an injury /missing scale ..
Possibly just an injury that is getting infected?
How long has it looked like that ?

Gonna let it be for tonight I'm sick to my stomach thinking it's the big C word, that and my power keeps going out from tree branches taking out power lines, Thursday is my water change day so if I see it get worse i know columnaris isn't fuzzy so I'll have to Look up a treatment for that.

I agree with CB. Looks like a minor abrasion, with a fungus.

So what do I do? Water parameters are perfect as per usual, I know they say clean water is the best treatment but my water is prestine (except my intake tubes) I clean dead snails off them daily

Give it time .
You are right on top of it .
I think it will heal up as you said your water is good.
Bows can be spaz so it probably just ran/swam into something. keep your eye on it ,but sweat it at this point.
