Fellow AA members I need your help.

There are a couple fishes in my dad's tank that look a little sick.

They are the same breed of fish. They have these black lines on them.

We aren't sure if they are suppose to be like that or there is something wrong.

Hi ahodmv,

That looks like an orange chromide, Etroplus maculatus. One of a handful of Asian cichlids. Based on appearance, there's nothing wrong with them.

Are you talking about the lateral line? Basic anatomy of a fish
