I know from personal experience that Rainbows aren't the easiest of fish to capture on camera, but if you could possibly send any pics of the afflicted fish it would help.

Most fungus outbreaks are secondary and usually show up around injuries. mouth fungus is common as fish often fight by jawlocking. also most rainbow fish are from brackish water and do better when salt is added to their water. Fungus infection disease or cottonmouth is most common on newly imported fish or in poor water conditions when the immune system is weakened.
