Grey Skin/fungus
 
Hey guys,

Recently the 2 yellow labs left in my mbuna tank have devoloped a little bit of greyskin around their mouths/heads, the rest of my africans are uneffected. my best guess is this is fungus, water params are fine 0 amonia, 0 nitrites, 6 nitrates.

either way, we did a 40% water change and added marcyclan for the the fungus.

since then it has seemed to slighly disapate, but is not complete vanished.

should i go another round of medicine, or have i improperly diagnosed this.

thanks
Greg

could it be bacterial instead of fungul?

Any pictures? I doubt fungus is the case.
