It is a parasite. I've seen this before with Rams. It was extremely contagious and spread once the parasites broke the skin surface. I would suggest a couple doses of Prazi Pro or an edible anti-parasitic laced food (MetroPlex http://www.seachem.com/metroplex.php).

Good luck with the treatment.

Respectfully,

PS: If you are not too attached to the fish and no other fish have the same symptoms, culling may be the safest and easiest option.

It is a type of internal parasitic worm. I never got a correct ID. My friend eventually euthanized his infected stock as it became extremely contagious. It initially started with his tank raised/bred Rams (several different varieties that were not wild-caught). It also spread to his Cardinal tetras.

Respectfully,

Stuart
