    That I definitely haven't came across. Maybe a internal worm of some sort, I would assume its not lethal as ur fish still eats.

    Atlantic blue ate frozens wen I got it now only taking flakes and eats nori insanely. Had it in Cupramine so will soon go to display, nice guys just a little prone to itch like a powder blue, so taking extra precaution.

    Its all good. Still need to come by to get those ballast from you for some blue lights, my excuse to take a peek at Your tank/tanks. Will pop around in the week if you not too busy
