Does my butterfly have a disease?

Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I noticed this white grouping on my butterfly tonight. Fish is acting normal and continues to eat fine. Best pictures I could currently obtain.

Yes, most likely Lymphocystis also know as cauliflower disease.

There is no treatment for it, keep the water clean, feed the fish healthy food and it will go away on its own.

Fish might have resurgence from time to time. Is kind of like human herpes.
