I have a feeling on the end of my goby's tail that there's a parasite... Am I right?

I'm assuming that this is the goby from your other post and the color has returned?

Yes it is and yes it has! He's fine now I just got worried when I woke to see him almost white in colour!

It's hard to tell from the pictures.. Could be an air bubble some sand or could be a parasite... Is it flashing on the rocks or swimming funny?

He isn't still for long enough to take a decent picture! Nope, he is swimming fine, he's resting a lot on the glass
and sideways on my thermometer too

I would just watch him see if it goes away if it bothers him or you could catch him an gently take a closer look
