Pecula Clown fish - fungus

10 Gallon aquarium, live rock, brittle star and 2 clown peculas. Tank has been established for over a year now, fish have been in for 2 weeks. As of late, the larger (female) has developed a fungus on her dorsal fin. I've run through some different forums but don't have enough expertise to diagnose the fungus or treatment. Can anyone look at these pics and determine? Salinity is fine. Getting ready to take a water sample to the LFS, but not sure the nitrates/nitrites/pH and ammonia are an issue. In the meantime, any help is appreciated. Pictures can be found here: New Page 1. thanks in advance!
