i can try. the funny thing is its on its right side, but he swims only showing his left side lol

it looks like a white patch, larger than the white "spots" i'm used to seeing with ich. the salinity is a little low in the qt, and i'm trying to get it up a little before I move him

Might be a fungus or bacterial something. We had something similar on the mimic tang. A few weeks of qt and melafix and good as new...either way qt is best. You don't want all that junk in your qt.

Well I'd love to get him well, but I just spent about an hour chasing him around the tank trying to catch him. I've knocked over rocks and my chromis came close to jumping out twice. I don't know what to do now. I have to get him before the whole tank gets sick

Take the rock out and try to corner him. Try with 2 nets. Give him no where to hide...the tank was a huge pain to get...just put the goby I. Qt for some distress and fin issues...he was weak, so he was easy...they are usually a real hassle

It's more than one rock to move, this is a 75gallon he's in. The base rocks are huge. I used two nets and a third to use as sort of a block. He does come out to eat so I will try to use that to my advantage later when I get home.

I literally fished one of mine out..... It's a major headache removing them and I had 5 that's why I'm not the proud owner of my 14" net which nobody escapes haha

MRC said it right. A 20 is a good size. I use a 29 in my basement, but most importantly put nothing in it but some pvc for the fish to hide in. A filter and heater and thats it. Keep it simple. Itll be easier on you that way also.

at this point I really dont know what to do. I tried for literally almost 2 hours tonite. I moved rocks, I tried to use them as blocks to keep him on one side of the tank, I splashed so much water on the floor that I didnt realize I lost a fish on the floor. I'm just going to leave him alone and watch him and hope I can just catch him on top of the tank one day or something. I've made such a mess in the tank I may just have to start the whole thing over, and that is really not a good thing!

Sorry for all the problems with trying to get the fish out. You could use something like Melanie in the display thank, it's safe.
