I have a maroon clownfish that has been doing quite well over the last 6 months or so. It is behaving normally but over the last 3 days I have found it to have something attached to its right eye. It looks to me like a type of flatworm attached to the bottom edge of his right eye. No other markings on the fish, no pop-eye or anything like that. It appears to be triangular and is attached to what would be the fish eye sclera.
Water parameters are normal with 0 ammonia/nitrite/10 nitrate, salinity 1.025 with refractometer, stable temperature at 79. All of my other fish are doing fine along with coral banded shrimp as well.
The only thing I have changed is I bought two frags of coral the last few weeks (one sps
and one small zoa rock). No new fish over the last 4 months or so. Top off with RO
water and do weekly 7% water changes.
Any ideas? I am guessing a flatworm at this point but searching the internet has so far yielded nada. I am also wondering what to use as treatment? I have tried catching the fish, but so far have been unable over the last few days.
Thanks for your help
