Water changes, your fish does not have a calcium build up but rather a mild bacterial infection. Meds are usually not required if the underlying issues are dealt with diligently.

Please read....

Please also post your water parameters.

Cheers

Do a couple (3-4) of those 20 gal water changes over the week or so. The new SW should be well aged/aerated a day ahead of time. It will help reduce the DOC and help alleviate the baterial issue. Your tank is fairly well stocked so you need to keep an eye on the water quality pretty good. It does not take much for an otherwise easily cured problem to become a nightmare.

As well be sure to use properly fortified foods. If available get some Selcon or Zoecon which is high in [acronym="Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acid"]HUFA[/acronym]/lipids and will aid the fish's natural immune system. Ensure the foods fed are a good variety of meat and <<vegetable matter>>.

Cheers
Steve
