    Ok folks, this is complex. I am a 12 year hobbyist and keep 3-6 tanks at a time. Bare with me here... it's all important for diagnosis. History: I have been struggling with large angels for the past few months. I had not had trouble for quite awhile before that. I have been killing...

    I have a fluke under a scale on a bicolored pseudo. There is absolutely no way to get him out... he wont even let me set eyes on him for 2 seconds. I asked the family vet... she noted that flukes - parasites are probably on the other fish in the tank. How do you treat flukes in a full reef...
