    Can't really tell from the pic. Is the Y-T new to the tank. If he is and he has a lesion, I would suspect a dottyback over all others. Mean little fish they are.

    thank you for the fast reply,he has been in the tank for 3 or 4 months.And yes the dotty is pure evil and pretty smart fish.the Damsel is eating like a pig still and his fins are still there. i think the dotty back is going to go in a 10 or a 20 gallon by him self.Thanks JOE

    It looks like popeye to me, my yellow tail had it. I treated his food with melafix and it disappeared after a few days.
