She's presented this for three weeks. Last week I treated with Pimafix and I think has helped but not cleared it up. My LFS has suggest treating with both Pimafix and Melafix for both fungal and bacterial coverage. Any ideas of what this could be and if this is the right fix? Both fish are acting normally and are quite active. I'd really appreciate some feedback. I got the moor from a really awful tank and have pulled her through and number is medical issues so I'm on a mission to keep her healthy! Thanks, KarenS
