Clown Loach with "white bruising"

Posted By: Furball <tuddy@ozemail.com.au>

2 of my 5 loaches are exhibiting bruising (white scrub marks on their sides), as is normally evident after fighting or aggression from another fish. I've noticed no real aggression by any fish (what? a REAL community tank?) other than the usual racing for food and territorial skirmishes.

Is this just normal roughhousing by a fish I haven't noticed, or is it something to be concerned about?

Any ideas please?
