I have a pair of black perculas in my 37 gal
reef. They are doing well, eating well, and love to swim against the powerheads.
The problem I have, is that every morning, when I flip on the lights, there are white patches about the size of a ball point pen tip and a little bigger on the under sides of the clowns bellys, pec fins, and tails......But here is the strange part, the are completely and totally gone within an hour or two of turning on the lights.
I have a bristleworm problem, I have about 15 five inch plus bristleworms in my tank, and all my LR
is on one side so they come out onto the sand bed every night and crawl around....my clowns dont host to anything so they just kinda hover above the sand...I have seen them bumping into the bristleworms every time I look at the tank when the lights are out....could these spots be from the clowns bumping into the worms?
If not does anyone have any idea what might be causeing this.....it is deffinatley not ick, and like I said, it goes within a few hours of turning the lights on.
My params are perfect
I am almost convinced they are being stung by bristleworms, and I plan on removing them ASAP.
Any other ideas?
