I got 2 golden headed sleeper gobies 2 weeks ago. One died 3 days after [first tank death
] but the remaining one seemed to be okay. Took a couple days but it eats fine. Still hides most of the time but I read that is normal.
I noticed some white spots on him the last couple days though. It's hard to say if it has been like that the whole time cuz the fish would always run and hide when I got close until recently.
Could it just be sand stuck to him? Are there other symptoms of ick to look for? Any good articles to read about? He does lay around hiding a lot but I don't know if it is because I'm watching and he gets scared. Also what should I do if he has ick?
My blue spotted jawfish died yesterday too which makes me think maybe he caught something from the goby? The jawfish lived happily for 5-6 weeks before I added anything else. Yes I have learned my lesson about quarantining fish and will do so from now on.
I have a 72 bow front aquarium.
