Win, AquaStar and Jing Chan Aquariums in Chinatown lost many thousands od dollars worth of fish because of Hurricane Sandy.

The appearance of white slimy or cotton wool spots on Goldfish often signals super-infection and sometimes triple infection. The three usual suspects, Columaris, Costia, and Chilodonella often work in concert. Columnaris is the best known, often referred to as "fungus." it is actually Flexibacterium columnare, a very contagious bacteria which can infect an entire tank in 2 hours, and may spread to plants rocks and decorations. It often affects fish that have Costia or Chilodonella parasitism, and they can be hard to tell apart. Columnaris is fairly easy to cure with Furan-2 or Kanamycin if caught early.

Not Sure:
It's another person's first post that got listed under the wrong heading. It is sort of paraphrasing an answer I gave about a month ago on Yahoo Fish Answers. They did in fact have Costia and I recommended an anti-parasite treatment.

Costia and Chilodonella
I found the question on Yahoo. It was about a white slimy infection in a Goldfish tank. I indicated that it might be Costia or Chilodonella and suggested Coppersafe to cure it.
