Synodontis Flaking / Losing skin tone?
I have a Synodontis in a 55 g tank w Africans. About 8-10 mths ago, i noticed a skin condition appear on the cat. Initially, i thought he had scratched himself against the rocks, but it never went away and got worse over time. Almost seems as if he's losing skin pigment. I've noticed no adverse reaction or behavior w the cat. I don't regularly see him eating the sinking discs anymore, but he has to be eating something since he seems in relatively good health (behavior-wise). The PH is kept in the 7.8+ range.
i've attached some pics - can someone pls tell me what this may be and how / if it shd be treated?
