VIDEO CLIP - Valentini Puffer Ick or Wounds?

Ive noticed slight marks on the puffer but i dont feel like they are ick. Take a look at the video clip i uploaded and lemme know if its ick or just regular stuff that happens (bumping into rocks trying to eat my snails)

Are you talking about on his face and above his eye? Those look like wounds to me.

yes on his face. i'd rather it be wounds than ick. he goes inbetween the rocks and picks at crabs and snails, i suppose thats how he gets damaged. how can i help him heal?

Keep good water quality and soak his food in a good vitamin supplement such a Zoe or Selcon.
By the way, what do you feed him?

i feed him pieces of squid hung from fishing line. this somewhat stops him from killing my snails because i guess he thinks its live pray. he's also the number one "eater" when i add live brine shrimp to the tank.


off topic but, sometimes he nips at my sea star too. he's basically attacking everything in my tank thats not a fish.

Try some of the ocean nutrition or san fransisco brand frozen foods. Excellent stuff! The brine is not most nutritional product, try some mysis shrimp instead.
Wouldn't worry too much about the flake.
