you have slime desiese, I suggest you do a 30-40% water change, and medicate for slime desiese, also add some salt to your tank (1 tablespoon per 5 gallons, assuming you don't already have any)
the spermy patches will most likely peel off and expose the side of your piranha, but it should recover if treated.
It may look nasty though

Good luck, and get that treatment started now, as slime can kill your fish, if it covers the gills the fish may suffocate.

I would suggest you use aquarium salt - it is pretty cheap from your local fish shop.
