I have never heard of a spirobid attaching to a fish. They are harmless filter feeders that you often see attached to tank walls or plumbing. Also .. spirobids tend to be larger than ich.r6413utah said:Is this possible or does my second clown have ick, lost the first one last week.
Clowns get ich all the time and have no special immunity. There is some speculation about why clowns favor brook ... brooklynella spreads by physical contact and some would say that clowns tend to have more physical contact with each other than other fish ... especially at the wholesale/distribution level.JennM said:Clowns rarely get ick, but they often get Brooklynella. Hard to tell from the pic but I'd bet it was Brooklynella.Jenn
Not sure where the diagnosis of "black ich" came from ... remember that "black ich" is definitely different than crypto (marine ich) and fortunately is pretty easy to eliminate and not near as harmful/deadly as most salt water diseases.r6413utah said:I wrote an email to petco, not that it will do any good. Need to let them know about the black ick
