Hi all, got this Naso last week(from the website that quartines fish) and I've noticed the last couple of days he has a few big spots. Which I believe is too big to he ich. Could it still be parasitic or is it maybe fungal or bacterial? I started treated with metroplex(in the food) but I'm not sure I shouldn't maybe be using a antibiotic like kanoplex instead. Thoughts?

Thanks!

From this image, and considering it's a Naso, I wouldn't be surprised if it is stress spots. But I am spitballing.

the size suggests kymphocystis, the spots on the glass make it difficult
 

No bones about it! Have you thought about keeping an invertebrate-only tank?
