I do see something funky though, baby has a booboo.

Something external, sticking out between scales on the right side of the body. Circled. Took a video too but you have to know where it is to know where to look, right?

I'd ask @Slocke and @Crabby48 to have a look at this leopard.

I’m no help I don’t see anything
It looks like a white vermetid snail sticking out of her side. The video is the easiest to see it. I think it will be hard to ID without more closeups.

I can’t watch the video, boo.

How long has it been on her? It probably will fall off and nothing will become of it. Watch for infections. Like a person it will get red around the area. Clean water feed healthy. Extra aminos and or vitiate is always good.
She in a reef tank or smaller holding tank? Anything that isn’t natural in the tank that sharp?

Definitely something soft, it's a little flappy.

I'll get a better video tomorrow, she's in the sand now.

I've only had her since Saturday, this is the first day she's been out. I did not see anything on her the first day. She's in a 13.5g Evo that I've been slowly breaking down, there's mature sand/rock and 2 clowns left, a couple corals. There's been no fish that eats little critters in months so there's a good volume of snacks.

I figured this was best as there's no competition and mature sand.

Definitely still a something attached. Thinking about a freshwater dip/bath? I've never done one, so tips appreciated, and I'm going off to read about it.

I plan on only stressing her once, so after I catch her and before the dip I plan on taking any photos/videos that I can.

Might be worth posting the video/photos in the fish medic forum with Jay Hemdal first before taking the leopard out to see what they think it is. They stress out really easily with tank extractions, so may want to gather more info first.

Yeah I've been trying for a video that shows anything but I can't seem to catch it just right.

She's eating though, so that's good. She emerged around 11am so a late sleeper, lol.

Might be better? I had my hand in the tank to guide her closer to me, sorry for the shaky vid.
So I took a still from each video to show it's location, hoping you'd know where to look on the actual video. (Vids loaded directly to forum, if they don't work I can utube it)

Id honestly give prazi a dose and see of it falls off. If you go that route, half dose first, 25% next 15 minutes. If all looks well last 25% after a half hour mark.

If shes breathing hard at 50% 75% dose, water change, carbon. I had to do that with my ribbon eel.

I don't know what it is, prazi i is usually safe unless over dosing.

Is prazi something I can dose right in this tank or do I need another set up?
You can dose it with any setup.
But, those are good videos. Get jays opinion. Wrasses hate meds, and id rather treat her right the first time
