Ok, my male clown has salt-like specks on his head, but more like splotches on his body, and his gills are covered. It does not look like ich that I have experienced before, but doesn't have the gold tint that I've seen described with velvet, either.
He is eating. He's not flashing (in fact, he seems to be avoiding touching anything at all), but has been darting erratically, and swimming with his head down a lot.
I noticed a speck this morning at 5, and now it's all over him. Last night he seemed
uninfected. It definately looks like a parasite to me, but which one, I don't know-I've never seen one cover this quickly
I do not have a hospital tank set up right now, but will get one up today to treat. Camera is dead; waiting on battery to charge for pics.
yellowtail damselfish, 2 osc. clowns, diamond back goby, crabs and snails, various soft corals,
1 goniopora...it was a gift from a friend, and we're waiting to see how it does before bringing it to my lfs
, as I've read lots of horror stories about them
