It depends on what type of fungus they have, most likely its bacteria Flavobacterium. This bacteria makes up mouth and body fungus (which is really bacteria). Anti-bacterial medications which should cure this disease if used promptly, at later stages the bacteria may invade internal organs, in which case only antibiotics may be effective. Different strains exist which vary in their virulence or aggressiveness.

What your using could do the trick, if it speads ANY at all I'd take steps for a more powerful med.
