I have a discus community tank and about a week ago one of my blue rams got little pimples(with white stuff coming out) on its face and died and just today i noticed that both of my neon rainbow fish have it near the rear of their body. What could it be and how do i treat it?

Sounds like it could be ick. There are a number of available meds for it. You can also raise the temp and add aquaium salt to the water to treat it. About 1 tablespoon aquarium salt per 5 gallon of water.
