Default Is this fungus on gills?

Just wanna make sure this is fungus? I've started salt baths. 1 liter of water and 3 teaspoons of aquarium salt for 14 minutes, covering the container to limit stress. Recently had an animal pass and was on vacation and the person watching them left the food in there to rot and I think that caused it. Along with going through a mini cycle at the moment but I'm using prime.

Yes, that is fungus. But it sounds like you are on top of things. :)

Yeah, looks like it. When my axies developed a fungus, I ended up moving them to the basement because mine was caused by high temps. You are doing great, keep it up and it will be gone in about a week or two.
