I've had a problem like this with rock bass. (This is probably something different because no crater is formed.) If my tank has an algea bloom (not uncontrollable but to where everything is covered) my rock bass get these small bubbles on their skin and they start acting funny then they will quit eating. It will end up killing them if not removed to another tank. This might sound silly but I only get algea blooms in the tanks with rock much so that I don't keep a light on my rock bass tank.
