I am guessing it is a fungus of some sort but a picture would be very helpful.

Does it look anything like this?

I had this not long after setting up my tank. Never got to bottom of what it was. Removed what I could with a net and the rest just went after a week or so. Didn't affect my Betta.

There's a thread about it this in F&B General discussion called 'What is this...' (On iPhone so can't post link)

Everyone seems to agree its fungus and completely harmless. It'll go in time.

I've had it before and it eventually will just go away on its own.

Yep, it's a fungus and completely harmless. It is sometimes caused by overfeeding. Maybe consider feeding a bit less from now on.

Could be stress? Give it a few days and see if it will eat.

I got my platy and guppy on Sunday. My guppy still won't eat and he doesn't move much. He kinda just sits at the top or a the bottom.
