Sorry to hear this Willow, it could be a number of things although the web appearance (does it look like lesions?) you describe makes me think skin flukes as a possibility.

How is he behaving, does he have any other symptoms at all, and is it possible for you to take a picture of him?

That's bizarre. Oh well, I'm glad everything's okay - just keep a careful eye on him :)

Hmm... is the tank planted? Could maybe have been some dead plant matter that had stuck to him?
