So our beloved clownfish, Elaine, started swimming erratically around to day. Also she swims up against the powerheads. We also noticed some tiny white dots on her (picture), she is below 2 inches, so very tiny dots. She is eating fine and is behaving normally around 50% of the time.

So here is the question, could this be velvet. The last addition the the tank is over 5 weeks ago and no other fish has shown any symptoms.
According to the velvet disease thread, the dinospores can only be inactive for 15 days and has a short cycle of 4 days.

Best regards
