 This sounds like a syndrome that I have seen in my tanks on occasion. Are you
also noticing behavioral issues with your female? Reclusiveness and perhaps
obsessive occupation with adhesions to a particular part of the tank's decor? I
often begin treatment of tanks with such afflicted animals with baby brine
shrimp or microworms about a week or so after onset of symptoms. I agree that it
can be worrisome, and hope this helps.
