something killing my tetra on clown loaches

yesterday everbody was healthy and happy , today i find a my baby clown loach dead and all my tetra sick , one was so sick i had to put him down , they look like there covered in white caili flower looking growths , kinda looks like ich but not quite , and its spreading quick , one tetra had one spot and now is fully covered in it in a six hour period , already started treating for ich and fungus so it shouldnt still be spreading , im afraid im gonna lose all my fish , someone please help , im really concerned its spreading so fast

Try to post some pictures if possible, if it's Columnaris the meds your using won't stop the infection. For that I'd use Fungus Clear by Jungle or their medicated food.
