fungi attack... due to sudden temp drop.. plus water issue...
as suggested in other thread, large water change, dose with rock salt 1:10 ratio
and buy new heater to raise temp 28 to 30 deg C

This did not happen overnight, or even over a couple days. Much more here than meets the eye. You need to clean up the water, get nitrate under 10ppm and keep it that way.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

You could be right. I haven't been keeping up on the water and I think that's what did it
