Fish sick? Flashing & missing scales

Chrisfish7887

I got 10 Multis recently in a empty cycled tank it’s been about a week so far. I started noticing flashing of some of them on the sand recently and yesterday I observed one of them that already had a little bit of missing scales it looked like I wasn’t sure if it was because he was lower in the pecking order, but I saw him flash against his shell 10 times or so. So I think that explains the damage to his scales? Would this be flukes possibly? He seems to itch himself near his gills. The others are acting fine other than an occasional flash out of a few of them.
80 f ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate10ppm kh180
Ph 8.2
They also have been having long stringy and sometimes translucent poops
The one that flashed the most has a pale patch on his skin a few mm behind his operculum can’t tell if it’s damage or excess slimecoat but above it it seems there are a few scales definitely damaged or missing.
