You can use this site to reduce the image: http://www.horseweb-uk.com/imagereducer.htm

and this site to upload and store it:

I'd keep it as large as possible in order to detect what’s wrong more easily.

Good luck.

I've resized your photo. I would treat it as ich and treat with a copper med like cupramine. Definately want to QT, you don't want to add copper to your main tank.

I don't see anything on the fish that looks like ich. What exactly are you seeing? Would you describe it as grains of sugar on the fish? Faded patches? Dusty looking appearance? If you could give us a colorful explaination of the markings on the fish that may help identify what it has.

If you look on the stripes, you can see white spots.
Dianeww, I don't know why you can't see the photo.

You would be better off with doing the Hypo treatment on the lion, Lions & copper do not mix.
When they shed they will go in the higher flow areas to shed, it looks like a milky slim, you may see it on your rocks when it comes off.

The lion may be stressed because of the puffer, they are just not compatible being housed together.

Well it looks like the Ich treatment has removed all of the white spots but now it seems that he has fungas. I went to Petco and purchased a Hosptial Tank and I have bought mediciation for the Fungas. It says he should be treated for 5 days. Is this type of outbreak normal?

What did you use to treat the ich? I afraid you may be reacting to soon. It would take longer than a day to treat ich. Did you treat your main tank?

Also, in my defense specialk, I read to treat lions with copper out of Fenner's book so I'm under the impression that it is safe to use on lions.
