Hello everyone, I am quite concerned with the appearance of my clownfish. I picked him up a few days ago and noticed that he had been developing these faint white spots. I tried looking up everything but just couldn’t find what I was looking for, it doesn’t appear to be ich. Although I could still be wrong. Anyway, I took him back to the store I got him and I spoke with the owner and told him everything that I had noticed, such as the fish hasn’t been eating. The owner looked at him and tested my water. He assured me that the fish looked healthy and based on my water test he was fine. However, the next day comes and I noticed that there were more spots. Now I’m even more concerned.
so my beloved royal gramma of nearly 4 years is probably on her deathbed. she has always lived with ich but ate well. today, she stopped being interested in food and ate less and less, her slime coat started fading and she became emacicated, this started a few days ago, i thought she might bounce back from her starvation. pics will be posted later as she is hiding
I am extremely new to this hobby, and have only had a tank for 3 weeks with fish for 1 week. However, I’m pretty sure my Royal Gramma’s behavior isn’t normal. It keeps flashing against the sand, which I think means it’s scratching itself, but it’s tearing it’s fins by doing so. It’s also been staying in a cave the whole time, but now it’s moved to the corner of the tank in full view and just lays there sideways. My family says I’m crazy, but I swear there’s white mucous-looking gunk wrapping around the bottom of its head and near its gills, as well as a white spot on its tail fin, but very faint. I’ve read that that’s not a good sign, but I don’t know what it is a sign of. Should I be worried? What does this mean? I have a 20g with an Emerald Crab, a Lawnmower Blenny, and the Gramma. The Blenny was just introduced today. I can’t get any good pics because it won’t move, but I guess it’s better than nothing.
