    I have had him for about three months. It started about two weeks ago. It looked like he had got into a fight with one of the other fish. Then it grew tentacles or something.

    sounds like an internal parasite. That might be also the cause for the shrunken look and rib cage ...overall looks not getting food.,. if eating alike a pig and not plumping up is a sign of intestinal worms. Remove to QT / Hospital tank and treat with a dewormer and antibiotics. keep us posted. Just my 2 cents..

    So I converted a black molly for my reef. I had it quarantined for 6 weeks before putting in the reef (not for itself but to make sure that my other fish in qt were disease free) it has been in my display for about 3 months without issue.

    No other fish additions to the tank, though I did put 2 plugs of corals (dipped beforehand on Saturday).

    This morning I noticed that it has white coloration on its dorsal if. And a white patch. I don’t think it is ich, but wonder if it is bacterial. And whether I should worry about treating my display. I put the fish in quarantine.

    What I am talking about is on the torso and dorsal fin all the other spots are from dirty glass of the tank.

    The fish shows no other symptoms so far. No flashing, or labored breathing.

    I am including pics here. [​IMG][​IMG]
