I goggled it, but there are a million different answers. My Afican Cichlid has white stuff all over him. My catfish just died and had the same thing. He's not eating either.
We introduced 2 sucker fish 2 weeks ago. Could they have given the tank something? I need to figure out a treatment for him. Dd is so upset. She's had him a long time.

It is called "the ich". Scroll all the way down for treatment options. I bet it came from the sucker fish.
Hope your little fishy friend makes a full recovery.
