i saw this post a little late ......

Gutted for you mate its a real nice plec...

I would have said internal parasites but at that stage it would have been hard to treat...

It looks really ill....internal parasites are nasty and could have also put your plec off eating....

make sure non of your other plecs are showing the same sign's...if they are then treat straight away...

sorry for your loss mate... Evil or Very Mad
