title says it all, its to big to ich, and to small to be the isopods.
I have no Idea but I can't even tell that pic is a fish
Looks like fish lice to me, do you see them ever moving ? Or maybe but not so much anchor worms They as a rule tend to be a td longer then these are. What part of the fish where they found to be on and the photo was taken ? If gills ? It could be T.B
Thats the front right bottom side of a percula clown, haha
looks like that clown needs a dip!
I didnt think of fish lice. If its anchor worms, Ive never seen a case like this. The body of the fish is covered in them. Im half tempted to go buy a microscope so I can get a better look at this, haha.
If it is anchor worm or fish lice, cupramine should take care of it.
Here is what I am doing as for treatment...
I did the 2nd dose of cupramine today. The salinty is 1.015, not totally hypo, but close.
If I had some formalin, I'd dip it. Nobody around here sells it.
Here is another pic of the same fish, same side and almost the same angle. You can see in the pic compared to the first one, there is quite a bit less of the creatures on it. A: they are lice and they are moving around. B:the treatment is working.C:they have fallen off to reproduce.
Lets hope for B!
oh yeah, the fish has lost quite a bit of its coloration to.
Ouch!...that is one sick fish.
It looks like Brooklynella ( Clownfish Disease )
