1st fatality

Well one of my chromis bit the dust...I didnt think it was going to make it..a couple of days after I put it in the tank it ended up getting a small circle of almost cotton looking stuff on his tail...have seen stuff like that is freshwater before and thought same thing can happen with SW. Tacked it up to a fungus of some sort..then he got a sore on his side and the cleaner shrimp tried to help him out and I think it irritated it and the sore got very raw. Tried to catch him yesterday to put him in a separate tank, couldnt came home from work and he was stuck on my PH...poor guy...do you think this was something that could infest my other 2 chromis?

Thanks Grim

I dont know. It almost sounds like a viral or bacterial problem. Look on this link under Viral or fungaral infection.

I would also soak their foog in garlic, to help boost their immune systems. I soak mine from 20-30 minutes.
