Damsel with huge bump that regularly bursts
Thank you for the response!
Yes, a parasite is likely the culprit. I thought for awhile that maybe the fish was constipated and this was a new 'exit' . I had this with a lawnmower blenny once, but he died from it within a few days.
My Maroon Clown fish is now struggling to swim and often lays on his side in the sand.
I can't seem to get a hospital tank anywhere right now due to the pandemic, so I am taking both fish out, putting them into a freshwater bath with copper added, leaving them in for 5 minutes, then returning them to the main tank. They seem to do better for a day afterwards.
I'm trying to get an anti-parasitic medication too, but nobody seems to have it right now. Amazon does, but it wont be delivered for more than a week, so I'm worried it will be too late.
