Parasite (mobile) on gouramis head!!

I was looking at my fish today and noticed a little flying saucer like transparentish parasite on my fish's head.
When not moving it looks like a bump and blends in with my fish's natural skin. When moving I can see its little legs.

If anyone knows what these are, please tell me as I will have to treat my entire tank.

I have no idea what it is but I would quarantine the fish in a seperate tank untill you can find out how to treat it, and treat it seperately also if no other fish show signs of infection.
the other fish has it too. The thing is, I dont know what it is to treat. :?:
it looks like it is argulus. ive found a product to treat it. its called trifon by kordon. http://www.bigalsonline.com/catalog/product.xml?product_id=30007;category_id=3455;pcid1=2233;pcid2=
im wondering if i can treat the entire tank with all my fish and plants in there and if it will affect my CO2 at all.
