Emm again

This morning when I checked on my fish i saw that one of the zebra danios was growing what looked kind of like a mustache around his/her mouth. It was like skinny little hairs. I immediatly thought that he/she had sqwallowed on of the tiny floating plants that are in the tank ((which he/she has done twice before)) but now im starting to think its a fish disease.... then i noticed that one of the other zebras looked like he/she was starting a mustache..... what should i do????

well, off to google fish diseases......

It could be mouth fungus. But to make sure, refer to these charts for symptoms and diseases as well as treatment:

- gives good description of symptoms

emm thats absolutely possible(about the plants). I have to break the shrimp pellets I put in for the loaches because the danios will catch them and carry them around their mouth. So they could have picked up just anything. Now as a precaution keep an eye on them to be sure.
