I have a small tank (30L), with one hillstream loach and 8 cardinal tetra (although I'm not fully sure that it is a hillstream loach).
Some days ago I saw a couple of short 'threads' hanging from the edge of the loach, and now the 'threads' are all around (see the pic.). Anyone have any idea what is it? is it any disease/parasite etc? if so, how to treat it?
ps: The water has lots of oxygen, or at least I think so. The filter blows many little bubbles into the water.

I think so, too.elivaos wrote:
I get the impression that the "threads" are part of the skin... kind of long scales. Is that possible?
All other fish are ok.
My Beaufortia kweichowensis comes to look like that once in a while, too.
When I watched it for the first time, I thought that I was sick.
However, I think the symptom to be their healthy physiology phenomenon now.
I think that it resembles ecdysis.
thank you for answering.
odyssey: I think we are seeing the same phenomenon on your loaches and mine... phew! what a relief.
I can't be absolutely sure, but I think my loach (which we call Igor) seemed to be ok in the morning. But I had to leave in a hurry, then I can't be 100% sure. I'll check again tonight and update.
