Shedding Pleco

Jimmer_in_S_ON(5b Canada)April 24, 2005

I have a 5 inch pleco in my 65 gallon tank that I wintered my pond goldfish in........I put half of my fish back into the pond ,and have noticed my pleco is shedding a layer of this normal or is there something wrong with my fish? He seems to be fine healthwise (as far as swimming and eating is concerned). thanks in advance for your thoughts

is it an overabundance of slime/mucous being formed? Are you sure it's the skin?

Sounds like excessive slime like Sky said.
