    Last week one of the channels I got was covered with black spots on its body. Its lips and whiskers were also completely black. I got a bullhead a couple days before with the same type of spots. Any idea what is is?

    Thanks

    Are those spots raised, like a sore or wart or is it just the color of the skin.
