Maybe Brooklynella parasite, have you put it in quarantine yet?

Thats what I am hoping for that it is just an injury. It is definitely not Brooklynella, My tank would have been wiped out by now . I am leading towards sealice or the dreaded ISOPOD
Just wann know if anyone has had experience with this? Not much on the net about it. Except a nifty trick to catch them if they are free swimming !

I don't know what to look at on you'r picture.....possible to get a better picture..? Unless you know for sure from the other Reefers what problem you'r Fish might be having as I don't know them...I only read up and match the "symptoms"...sometimes I score and sometimes I miss......Could it be something like this...? Just plain Gill Flukes..? If it's not...can you explain to me what I must look for on the picture...? The "white bump" next to the eye...?
Quote:
These parasites are worms that are most often seen on butterfly fish, angelfish, and wrasses. Usually, only one or two fish are infected but it can spread to all the fish in a short time. Common names include gill flukes and skin flukes.


They will appear as tiny worms, but can be very difficult to see on the fish. They usually attack the gills of the fish but also will attack the eyes too.
