Hi all -
New poster here, long-time lurker... I've had my 42 G Hex up and running for about 6 weeks (50 lbs live rock, 2" live sand). I've had 3 blue-green Chromis and 1 yellow-tailed Damsel in the tank for about 2 weeks...
Well, I decided to pick up a pair of false percs the other day at the LFS
. They looked fine when I purhcased them, but now the larger of the two has two fairly large "pale spots" on the left side of his body. They are only visible on the orange sections. I immediately started surfing the web and am just inundated with info. Is this Brooklynella, is it HLLE
, is it Velvet?
Does anybody have any ideas of what these pale spots could be? They don't appear to be raised off the body, nor do they appear that the spots will "shed". Maybe someone knows of some links with pictures of these diseases. Any help would be much appreciated.
Also, I have noticed that my sick false perc is swimming around with his dorsal fin and ventral fins "closed", or pulled close to his body. I read somewhere on the internet that it might mean the fish is sick. Is this true and does that help to determine what might be ailing my beautiful fishy?
Thanks in advance.
