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

Any pictures? I doubt fungus is the case.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
