No he must have had a wound. Do extra water changes to keep your water extra clean. It will help him heal faster. I believe jungle makes a good fungus medicine. If you can QT him do so. It will make him more at ease.

Most fungus is not, it is a secondary infection after a fish has a wound. It usually occurs if the water isn't perfect and the fish losses its ability to fight the fungus off.
