I am heading to pet store to get information. I guess if I need your help I will add another response. I haven't received one yet so please don't charge me. Thank you

Take a sample of the water with you to the pet store! It may mean that you do not have enough sodium (even in a freshwater tank) to stave off the bacterial/fungal over growth! Adding tetracycline to you water will also help.
