It`s probably popeye disease. You can see it in this link

As it says usually caused by not so great water quality. I dont know about the treatment he has on the link but I`ve always suggested pristine water conditions should take care of it.

Yes it could be. Anything is possible but most cases are from poor water conditions. How often are you doing PWC`s ?
