I’m seeing what looks like the same kind of white patch as the gramma on the blue damsel today on the left side near the gill. I know you said that it doesn’t look immediately treatable with the gramma, but I thought I’d share I’m seeing it on the damsel as well, just in case that means anything or looks different to you. I don’t know when these symptoms first appeared, as they hide a lot. Here’s a video of the damsel. The damsel also did this twitching behavior. It’s difficult to tell exactly what the behavior is because of the angle in the video. Maybe you can tell what’s going on better than I can. There’s also video from today of the wrasse that has looked really bad since yesterday. Breathing heavily and laying since yesterday. The wrasse has this different looking (than the gramma and damsel) white patch on the abdomen. Any thoughts?That spot isn't velvet. It seems to be a minor mucus build-up, either from an injury, or possibly a mild Brook infection. The tips of the Gramma's pelvic fins are also a bit eroded, unsure why.
I'd say that this confirms that you have more than one issue going on; the acute fish deaths stopped with copper, so that cured something, but then, these lingering symptoms are here.
I do not see anything in the gramma video that shows me that its issue is immediately treatable. What I mean is that I've seen fish that looked similar in quarantine, and just didn't worry about it and they ended up being fine. If it worsens, then of course I would change up the treatment.
