    off the topic, your avatar is hilarious!!!! :rofl:
    had a colt with same symptoms, it slowly disintegrated over a month and was gone, did everything I possibly could, water changes, raised KH, nothing helped but it wasn't as big as the one you have, but it could also just be shedding. Hope it's nothing too serious...
