My pearl gourami developed black patches over night. Recent changes include adding a new water lily 4 days ago, mopani wood 2 weeks ago, and trumpet snails last night. Has anyone seen this before? I was thinking black spot disease but I think those typically look like spots whereas this looks like patches. He has been hiding more than usual but I have seen no evidence of bullying. There is a sand bottom and I got the trumpet snails to make sure it gets stirred. Is it possible that there was something in the sand they stirred up? image.png.86a2a49270cbb13fa8ecd9da07885309.png
