    Welcome to 3reef.

    This thread might prove interesting to you.

    I am of the belief that as another member posted it may very well be a type of marine fish turberculosis.

    I would research/google melafix and see if it might be appropriate in your situation.

    Please let us know what happens and good luck.

    I think it could be Vibriosis.

    Here are the symptom..

    Variety of symptoms are associated with this disease. They can include lethargy, darkening of color, anemia, ulcers on the skin and lower jaw, bleeding of the gills, skin and intestinal track, clouded eyes, loose scales, pale gills and sudden death.

    What do you think?

    Honestly I do not know a lot about Vibrosis. I do see this problem with clownfish posted more and more in the last couple years, it's always in the areas surrounding the mouth.

    If it's is bacterial, you will need to get on it asap, Melafix has shown good results with bacterial infections in fish. But you may need to find out more about the specific bacteria and antibiotics that are specific to it's treatment.

    I will look around some and see what I come up with.

    Thanks for the follow up.
