Hi,

Not exactly what I wanted my first post to be on here, however I am hoping someone can help me diagnose what is wrong with my clownfish.

Had her for about 3.5 weeks, she gets on fine with the smaller male. I added 3 snails and 2 hermits about 1 week ago and since then she hasn't moved much and hasn't eaten in the last few days either.

She is now breathing heavily near the powerhead. I've also noticed a single whit spot about 4mm infront of her gill.

All parameters are good and all other fish appear to be healthy for now.

Any ideas what this could be?
Thanks,
Alasdair

White by the gills or face? Sounds like brook
Thanks for replying!

It's between the gills and the face, just a small white spot. Goes through phases of swimming normally for about 30 seconds then back to facing down.

Is she likely to make it if it is brook?
 

Is your aquarium water as CLEAR as you would like?
