Is this fungus on tail fin? Picture

These two spots just showed up this week on my female Snakeskin Gourami's tail. This is an awesome fish and I don't want to lose her.

Can anyone identify what this is and how to treat it?

Thanks!

Forgot to add that my alpha pink gourami's been chasing all of the other gourami in the tank. He's quite mean. Those two spots are bigger today.

I never completely diagnosed this but I'm pretty sure it's some form of mold or algae.

I found that it comes and goes without incident if you're doing regular water changes. I'm doing a 50% WC a week (in a 150 gal). The water literally cures them and it goes away. These spots seem to occur on certain fish more than others. I suspect these would spread if you don't have a weekly water change in place. I'm sure someone on this forum knows the technical name for this.

Langerz - Sorry, I started this thread a year ago and don't have any more pictures. That same fish is still alive and healthy. The fish never acts sick, just gets those spots then they go away on their own.

Miyavp - Sounds like you need to post some pictures in a new thread.

I'd love too but my fish is light orange and the spots do not show up well...She also has some sort of fungus growing on her side but it started out with those spots. I hope you dont mind if I snagged your photo for my thread as an example of what they look like. Since I cant get any photos. I'm treating her with kanaplex right now.
