Dear reefers,

Yesterday i was looking at 1 of my clowns and i sawe somenthing odd, there are really small white dots on his side. I cant rembember that he had the white spots from te beginning. i've been looking at his behavior but he acts normal and eats well. I dont know if it are white normal spots or that it may be ich. You can only see it when you come real close. The water parameters are all fine. I hope some one can give me advise on what to do.

It could just be some particles from the water that got stuck on him. I don't think its anything. I wouldn't worry unless he starts scratching against a rock or gets smothered.

Yup, do nothing until such a time as the behavior of the fish changes, like rapid breathing, won’t eat, glassy eyes, rubbing or scratching.

unfortunately today i saw my clownfish scratching against the glass and filter. I'm preparing a hospital tank now for both my clownfish. I hope the infected clown will survive it.

Might be handy to get a biobrick and bacteria or similar for the qt tank if you wanna try and move the other fish over eventually.
