White lines on my Oscar just showed up

What are these white lines on my Oscar. I woke up the morning and saw them. He is acting normal and not stressed out... He is eating fine as well. It's on both sides of him or her...

Is it fuzzy? Hard to tell but it looks like it's dangling off the body in some areas?

Edit- Okay not Columnaris. I spoke too soon. Its an external parasite from the looks. Your tank looks a bit dirty so that may have caused it

Columinaris can be spread from fish to fish, so I would suggest treating the whole tank rather than quarantining and treating, but it's really up to you
Columnaris is a bacterial infection.
