I'm pretty weak in the areas of fish disease but trying to pick up all the knowledge that i can... it's not flukes or anything crazy like that is it?We're having a bit of a situation this week. I just put the two fish Grover and Storm into the tank after the fallow period and their QT time in Copper Power, then then I saw some spots on Storm. The first thought was that it was Ich, after all I've done to get rid of it...
Terrible phone picture of the left side. There are whitish spots, that don't exactly look like Ich, but I thought what else could it be. His right side is fine, not a blemish. So we watched him for a couple days and the spots faded quickly. I figured I would just ignore it for now and see what happens.
This morning I checked him and he was nearly healed, then I saw this after lunch on the other side.
NOT Ich, but Bite Marks!? I'm 99% sure that's what they are. They look just like the bite marks in the algae from the Lawnmower Blenny... There are a couple sets of rounded arcs of missing scales. The stupid clown likes to hang out right next to the Blenny, like they're best buds. Usually, it ignores him, but I have occasionally seen it dart out to scare him away. Apparently, it's stepped it up one notch... I hope he gets the hint.
I could be wrong, so we'll keep an eye, but I'm fairly sure at this point...
This one doesn't show the marks, but he's like "stop with all the pictures already..."
