    Ahhh and it does it look like Lateral Line Disease? Sounds like it could be a nutritional problem if it's LLD and the eye is clouded, either that or a water quality problem.

    It because he has a hippo in a 90g. Seriously they all look terrible after a while because of stress. HLLE, and other diseases show up once they get decent sized because there isn't enough from for them to feel comfortable. Tell him to donate it to someone with a properly sized tank.

    He is upgrading to a 300 in the coming week just have to build the stand, so I wasn't going to beat on him to much for having it in a 90

    I was just reading somewhere that Hippos are Planktonvores not herbivores like traditionally thought. Food for thought no pun intended. Well... it was most definitely intended. I'll be if the tang lives long enough most those symptoms disappear. I bet the HLLE scaring will never heal, but sometimes a good diet with selcon or vitachem or something can reverse alot of blemishes.
