Tang trouble

Having a hard time keeping tangs of different types. They always development lateral line or fin rot. Installed a ground probe before last addition(convict tang)and it still developed it. Heard carbon in the filter can cause this as well. Any truth to this?

Yep. I first learned of it from the kid at my LFS. I was describing what my tang looked like, and that was it. There are all kinds of papers written on it..
