    I don't think it's ick. I have been watching it for about three weeks and it doesn't seem to be getting worse. Both of my clownfish started swimming all crazy after about a week of the one getting this spot and head butting rocks so I put them in a QT and have been treating them for ick for...

    so after ignoring signs of whitespot and passing them off as stress, i have lost 3 of my 5 fish(2 clowns and a false gramma). I have managed to save my Humbug Damsel and Engineer Goby by using the oodinex. The 3 fish that died had no chance of surviving when i added the oodinex but the other 2...

    For about a week now ive seen these weird spots on my kole tangs head. Theyre white blotches definitely not a disease but it looks like hes scratching himself. I give him seaweed every other day, and he always eats it so it cant be LLD. Ive always had problems with this fish, any ideas?
