Good afternoon everyone,

I have an older cichlid that appears to have some sort of black powder on him. It is most pronounced between his eyes, but small amount can be seen near the dorsal fin (not on the fin itself but on the body).

I have looked through several list of cichlid disease but don't seem to see anything that fits. Is seems like a black fungus to me.

Any idea what the cause of this is and if a treatment is need or if it will go away with the weekly water changes. Water parameters are all normal.
