Fungus on my Marmokreb ?

Ive been breeding marbled crayfish for a while now so i know this isnt normal but i would like to know what it is since it shares water from my rainbow tank.
Yesterday she was fine and ate normally, today i noticed she was berried and her tail tucked under. There is a white film that covers the eggs under her tail.... as picture shows. Does anyone know what it is and would a simple salt bath help ?

I do not have experience with this, but I would think a salt bath couldn't hurt. I'd rather my gals drop eggs and try again later than compromise them.

Thanks, I put a couple teaspoons of salt in so I will see if that works

You could also try adding some catappa bark to fight against the fungus. They're like Indian Almond Leaves, but more concentrated. I've heard they're used to treat shrimps since regular anti-biotics such as Mela-fix can kill the shrimps.

Just incase anyone comes across this thread at a later date.... The salt bath worked, the white filmed cleared after a few days and did not seem to bother the babies that are still in egg form. Thank you to those who responded.
