Hopefully not ich, the spots don't seem normal?
IMO ich spots are more flat, so im gonna say no to ich, however that doesn't rule other parasites out. Good luck with the ID
I agree some form of parasite but not ich.
Should I dose with copper? I have a fire shrimp and 2 hermit crabs but I can move them to another tank. There are also 2 snowflakes in there.
Definitely not. Copper is a drastic measure at this point and should never be added to your tank if you plan on keeping any inverts...which you already have. I advise that you look at what you're feeding. Try to feed quality food with HUFAs. Many times parasites show up due to stress or lack of quality food.
So the situation is that all 3 fish are new pickups from the same LFS. I didn't quarantine because they shared a tank at the store and no other fish are there. They are about 2-3 days in this new tank. I do plan on breaking this tank down though for a while after another tank I'm still plumbing gets setup.
They didn't really eat the first 24 hours but are eating some thawed Hikari bloodworms. I suppose I could just wait it out?
2 snowflake eels?
Sorry snowflake clowns
LOL Good, I was going to say why are you worried about ick when you bought a feeder for your eels LOL
I've noticed Gobies like that getting bumps like that come and go. I'd watch to ensure it is eating and if it continues to eat I would not worry about it
Okay thanks, he seems to be eating alright for a guy his size. Grabs big blood worms but I am overfeeding the tank since he isn't nearly as aggressive as the two clowns in grabbing food. Just more sand vacuuming I guess.
