Probably shedding. If it looks like flakeyness on his neck/arms/legs it\'s shedding. They do it all the time so don\'t be worried :D

Yeah, mine are the same way, you can\'t see it when they are out of the water but when they are in you can see it clinging to their skin, kinda looks like fish flakes got stuck to them, you\'ll also see it on their legs as well.:D, don\'t worry.

they shed a lot when they are hatchlings cz they grow faster..then shedding starts to slow down as they get older..
