I have an 11 year old Tomato clown who is quite large, probably every bit of 3" good chance he is more. But I have just recently spotted a hitch hiker on his chin area. Gills look in tacked and it is not swollen or inflamed around it. It simply is on him, possibly sticking out of his gills. Securely attached to his gill junction area.

Clear, almost milky in color.
Small...close to 1mm in length.
No tail, appendages, or anything distinctly forming a body.

I have heard that older marine specimens can get tumors or growths along there body...but I have never read anything that would suggest it along there gills.

I am doing my best to get photo's but it is just so small its hard to tell.

Any one seen or heard of this before?

I know its a tough thing to see. Thats the best photo I have been able to get yet... but, I'll keep trying to get a close enough one.

Not an isopod then. Well I guess eliminating what it isn't works for process of elimination! :)

Thanks
