Some fish diseases that look like fungus are actually bacterial in origin.

Google pictures of each of the following, and add the word Fish in the search.
Flavobacteria columnaris
Mouth Fungus
Saddle Disease
Columnaris disease

Most of these are actually the same organism (Flavobacteria columnarus) with many common names.
Treatment is with antibiotics that target Gram negative bacteria.
