Hi all. The baby bettas and fundulus chrysotus in my 65 gallon high have been scratching for months, and I'm not sure how to treat it. I'd hate to break the tank down and sterilize it, as some crypts are doing really well in the foreground. I've tried paragon, sodium chloride, and potassium permanganate, but these don't seem to help. I haven't seen any white spots on the fish, but the bluespotted sunfish and the small ancistrus don't seem to be affected.

Any ideas?
