    My clown now has something white on both eyes. It's not ich because my fish are in QT for ich and on day 23. But it sticks out from the eye. You can see it sticking on on both eyes.
    This is by far worst part of hobby. It's clearly bothering him/her. I would bet it does within 48 hours unless I can cure.
    Tried to take pics but all blurry. Freaks me out. Something white sticking out of both eyes.

    Worst week ever. Someone stole my 8 year old sons bike last night. Now this!!

    Sounds like flukes, pretty common. Google it and see what you think. Of course you'll have to treat.

    Post up an image so we can rule out eye infection secondary to decline in water quality, usually high nitrates.

    Thank you for your reply. I'll research that.
    I've been trying to take pictures on iPhone. It's so hard. And non of them show it. I was hoping someone would recognize my descriptions.
    I promise you one day when I have enough experience I'll be replying to peoples post here. It's easy to post a question and get an answer. But it's the pie like here that make this site so valuable.

    This looks like a pin sticking out of the eye. 1/8 in length. Each eye has it. My kids said looks like a branch coming out minus the length.
    Sometimes I hate this hobby. These clowns are all I have left from ich. They cleared the 23 day mark for that and boom.

    image.jpg This hobby is so heartbreaking. My clown is dying. I'm on day 23 from ich but now has bumps on him. I'm trying to take pics but it's blurry and he is hiding.
    I did a search and looks like this on the back part of body. Everything I'm doing is for this fish. The QT and meds for ich. The time. Just have have something else come up to kill it
