My 36 gallon tank is two weeks old. Last week my tank was going through a rough New Tank Sydrome stage but over the last couple of days it seems to be alot better. I have three Bala Sharks (in amoungst a bunch of other community fish). All my fish are healthy with no signs of disease but one of my Bala Sharks is turning white from the head down?? A couple days after I got him I noticed he had whiter lips than the other two Bala's, every day or so I've been noticing the whiteness from his lips is spreading to his head and keeps on going. It looks almost as if he is scraping is head maybe? (its like he's Michael Jackson...slowly turning white, lol) It doesn't look like Ich because I know that's more like white dots. I had an aquarium a few years ago and my fish had Ich before. Any suggestions as to what this might be? Also the Bala Sharks are small still so I really don't think they are scraping on to ornaments and damaging themselves but I don't know what else it could be. Hmmmm.... I might try to post a picture later.
