Any ideas what it could be? he has absolutely no white spots or velvet on him, no open sores or anything where a parasite may have gotten in. He hasn't gone to the surface for air, he hasn't flashed against anything. He's still eating and very active.

Could it just be stress markings? I've been messing with the tank all day, in fact was planning on like a 50% PWC sometime tonight.

No clue what it is but you may want to hold off on the pwc, weither its just stress markings or an actual parasite..doinng a 50% pwc is gonna add a bit of stress

Don't get paranoid. I was at work today but I was able to do some research. Well I did ALOT more than I should have lol, I ended up having to keep my phone plugged in so I could use it lol. Must have been to a thousand or more web sites.

Now I'm home and I'm gonna try to find some of the stuff I thought was related, I didn't have your message with the symptoms to go by. So I read anything and everything I could (between doing my job...darn job got in the way of my research lol). I had some sites I wanted to send you, I gotta find them again here now though.

Haven't noticed anything stringy or weird.

I'm unfortunately in the middle of my pwc. I took out like 35g.

Back to finish! woohoo...also re arranged a bunch of corals.
