I am currently definitely overcrowded but that is not my current concern.
Right now the issue is simply having the same problem with 2 separate fish of the same genus.
I have never in the last run into this issue with any of my Moors and am just concerned if it may be a parasitic issue or a possible fungal/bacterial issue.
I am awaiting a 50 gallon tank (would have been here today but the Trans Canada Highway #1 was closed).
So hopefully tomorrow we will be starting another tank as such I would like to diagnose this issue before transfer.
I do have dual filters running in my current tank and do a partial water change every 2 to 4 days.
My concern is that it may be contagious
