The bits along the body just look like shiny pigments called iridophores. I can't really tell with the gills. If it is white and fluffy then the best bet is fungus

oh thanks i taught they were fungus ,i think the skin near the gills are peeling , its little white “ ich “ like spots with a hole in the middle idk if That makes sense.
treating it is pretty confusing to me since everyone else’s treatments are a tad bit diffrent some say 100% water change everyday some say only 25%
And some say to do tea baths

what do you suggest?

I'm not sure of the best treatment. Do a search on the forum for ich and see what comes up
