The holes are ammonia burns or snags.

So what is the ammonia level of your water? What water changes have you been doing?

Using the API Freshwater Master Test Kit:

Ammonia: 0 PPM
Nitrite: 0 PPM
Nitrate: 0 PPM
Ph: 8.0

I last changed the water (100%) 3 days ago.

I have been doing 100% water changes mostly every 2-3 days since this started, although there was a 5 day period last week when I did not change any water. Please understand, my fish HATES being netted OR cupped and it is VERY upsetting to him and takes a LONG time, even when bribed with food. Since I have a 3 gallon, I figured that having to catch him every day for a 100% water changed was going to be worse for him than the amount of waste he could put into that water by himself in a space of 2-3 days.

Interesting my Luigi's dorsal fin was 1st to show signs of this same problem as well..and BAM! In no time it took hold and began spreading like wildfire. Very strange & insidious illness that took hold of little Luigi. He was in a 3 gallon...doing beautifully..until he became possessed by unknown forces and it drug him down into unknown fish waters of OCD madness with a 3-day-non-stop marathon of him circling a plant non-stop. I removed the plant, he still did it. I upgraded him to an 8 gallon Aquaeon penthouse palace...he might as well have been in a mud puddle for all he noticed. He was in manic mode of back & forth...up & down. Made me dizzy. The once graceful...peaceful Luigi has been kidnapped. Someone replaced him with the bipolar version.
