    My koran tang has been in my QT for about 2 months with a full dose of cupramine, I knew it has something on the bottom fin. Today I decided to take him out to see and take pics. I now see some egg patches so I just did a methylene blue bath. Hopefully it will help. Anyone know what they are? It does not seem to harm him. Few weeks ago, I had also moved hum to another tank with Kanaplex to fix a fin that was not moving (or rotting). That was fixed but this egg patches didn't seem to go away (so kanaplex did not work for that).

    I've not seen this one before - but perhaps @Humblefish, @melypr1985 or other members of the #reefsquad have. While you had her out in the net, did you try removing any of them?

    Pics were taken when I took him out for a fresh water bath. After seeing the patches of eggs, I decided to do a 5 min methylene blue instead.

    Oh, I tried to remove the eggs but I did not do it hard enough. None came off.

    I'd be afraid to try too hard get them off also ! Can the fish be caught again with out too much stress for both involved?

    What do you all have in your tank as far as other fish and snails that you know of?

    QT is 30G and has only PVC pipes. Catching it is not too hard.

    A sailfin has been with him the whole time (2 months). Today, I just added another patch of fishes - powder blue, brown tang, saddle puffer, foureye bufflerfly, and one bufferfly that I have yet to ID.
    Looks like brown tang has ich (one white dot), I will see if cupramine will take care of that. Tomorrow I will start dosing kanaplex.

    Can you ID this bufferfly fish please?

    It sure looks like snail eggs attached to the fin / body.

    That almost looks like a Xanthurus Cream Angelfish

    QT with cupramine. No inverts there. It is cured (with a lot of yellow filter sponges at the sump) and I have seneye watching the NH3 (0.01ppm). Cupramine is 0.50ppm (more or less).

    Yay, it is a Xanthurus Cream Angelfish. These fishes are so hard to ID. I thought it was an bufferfly. Thanks.

    You may find an even closer match with the Singapore angelfish. Both of them are in the genus Chaetodontoplus, the name of which references the genus of butterflies Chaetodon. You're not the first to think they're similar!

    Singapore angelfish it is. Dang, they are really not easy to ID. Thanks.
    Now, hope some experts can ID what parasites my Koran tang has.
