Hi everyone,

I’ve been reading these forums a lot for the past few years… but this is my first post.
thank you for the help last and present….

got a New Gem Tang. She has been quarantined for almost 3 weeks while her tank is getting aquascaped… I noticed this on her face yesterday… I can’t find exactly what it is.

But it looks to me like velvet. Right around her eyes (left more so than right).
Could also be her just bumping into something and scratching it?

does anyone think different?

thank you again for your help.
And please excuse the mess. I was feeding and taking pictures at the same time.
