I know the lack of pictures is making it difficult... I'm going to spend some time on Monday and try to get some.

Thing is, the fact that while in the freshwater bath and something came out of the fish's eye, wouldn't that tell us that it is flukes?

I don't want to give up on this fish yet... It's there to greet me kinda like my puffer and eats out of my hand. Other than the eye the fish seems completely healthy.

I don't think the fish was coughing up flukes but maybe actually puking up flakes that I had fed now that I thought about it. Either way, something came out of the fish's eye and the fish eventually shook it off, that I'm sure of.

The other thing is that the fish store is about an hour from my place. I'm actulaly driving through there next week though so I could bring it back...

Does the frustration ever end?

Ok so came back today and the fish is still eating swimming around acting healthy.

Eye looks better too.

Thing is now I'm noticing what looks to me like finrot. Could this have been caused by the freshwater bath?

I took some pics and these are the best I was able to take... I know they aren't great

I also uploaded a video, not sure if it will help:

YouTube - Flame Angel possible fin rot/worm?

It's hard to see in the video since I don't have a great camera but it looks like the tail has little bites out of it. And the blue fins look kinda freyed.

Nitrates are around 20 so I'm going to do a bunch of big water changes and get them down, should I medicate with anything?

Ok so I did big water changes the last 2 days and nitrates show 5.

Fish is flashing a lot more now. Seems to be scratching the gills on both sides. Would you treat the tank with prazipro or something, or maybe another fresh water bath? I'd rather not do the fresh water thing again if I don't have too.

One dose of prazipro and a couple of water changes and no more flashing

The eye thing seems to be gone too, doesn't seem as cloudy.

I'm going to dose 2 more times with prazipro to kill any eggs then in the big tank!

Thanks Pat!

Update on the situation... Fish has completely stopped flashing and its fins are coming back in nicely... but I just noticed a big white spot (too big to be ich i think) on its tail... almost looks like a zit

I treated with prazipro 3 times a week apart... doing about a 60-75% water change each time.

Nitrates have been 5 or under through the whole prazipro treatment.

I'm once again trying to get a good picture but the fish still gets really skittish when I have the camera pointed.

Any ideas what the spot might be??

So no ideas on what this might be??

Now there is the same white spot in almost the exact same spot on the other side of its tail.

I just did a +50% PWC and dosed with prazipro again last night but the dots are still there...

Fish flashed a few times after the water change but I haven't seen any flashing since...

Help???????

Almost looks like this. Check out these and see if they look like it.

It does appear to be similar to lymph.... it just seems smaller than most pictures I've seen of it.

It would make sense too cause the flukes were pretty bad I think, the fins were almost completely gone. So the lymph would have a way in.

I hope that's what it is... I don't mind waiting for it to go away I just don't want the fish to suffer, or worse...

So if it was you, would you just keep the water changes up and nitrates as low as possible and monitor?
