My maroon clown is 8 years old and has never been sick, but in the last 3-4 days he stopped eating. He normally eats mysis shrimp really well. There are many other fish in the 55gal reef tank who are all doing fine. I did add some new fish and coral about 3-4 weeks ago. I also had fed a few times w a dry pellet food for the first time, which he was eating before he stopped. (instant ocean marine pellets). He mainly just hangs in the bottom corner and constantly opens and closes his mouth. He also has some small blemishes that have developed on both sides. Doesn't really look like ick... But could be I guess. Coinciding w his anorexia was that my skimmer started overflowing after putting some weld on in the tank to place some coral down. I had used this before w/out problems. Even after water and carbon changes I still had to take the skimmer out, clean it and run water through it before it would go back to normal. I'm sure that didn't help but my parameters all are basically ok
I will try to upload a video
Thanks. Help me save him!!!
By the way. I don't have a hospital tank set up
I guess I could through one together but I'm afraid it would take too long w cycling etc.
