White Clouds and Red Lips

Postby Cootclub » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:07 pm

Evening all,
I have 5 White Cloud Mountain Minnows in a 240 litre aquarium. Recently, at least 3 of these have developed what look like red sores on their lips (see pic). Some are worse than others but I can't seem to find out what the problem is despite lots of research. Generally they are healthy,eat well and swim contentedly. All other fish in the tank are fine too. Any ideas?
