Unsure About This...

I bought a new tank for Achernar and I cleaned everything before adding the water to it and putting him inside. When it was time to put him in the tank everything was normal. After a while I checked on him and I noticed some dead skin or something coming off of him. That wasn't there before I moved him into his new tank. I'm unsure about if it's an illness or if it's normal. What do you think?

Could it be excess slime coat?

I'm in the same situation but I didn't buy a new tank. I placed Bubbles in a seperate tank that isn't in use at the moment so that I could clean out his other tank. After placing him back inside his proper tank I noticed an hour later that he had some dead skin looking stuff dangling off his body. I'm a little worried that this is an illness because I bought Bubbles with some massive fin damage from the store. I don't think it was smart of me to buy Bubbles when I knew that he had fin damage because this'll be my first fish ever. I know nothing about fish.
