This morning I just noticed that my chromis have white blotches on their skin. From what I've been reading looks like urenoma. I've had them for about 3 months, and no illness until now. I can't even seem to catch them because I have so much rock work. Is this a tank killer? Sorry for the awful pics. Their hard to photograph

It doesn't look like classic Uronema to me. Have you lost any of them yet? The water seems a bit murky, how are the test results for it? Especially ammonia. Also, both he puffer and the trigger are not opposed to taking nips out of other fish.

No. Haven't lost one. And the water was a lil murky cause I just did a feeding. And I've never seen the puffer or trigger even mess with the chromis, not to mention there to fast for them.

Update: All fish are still living. Guess it's not Uronema. Stumped on what it is though.
