    Hi guys,

    With the heat increasing my Coral beauty had a bad outbreak of white spot.
    He has been eating well and i dosed garlic with their food.
    I also ran a course of probidio spot and velvet and that ended yesterday. The spots dissipated and laat night and this morning all seemed well and he was eating like usual. A very healthy appetite. He is constantly grazing as well. When i got home this afternoon he was swimming upside down. And not eating. I have tried the usual pellets and flakes. Frozen foods and Nori. He is not doing anything. I then left him a bit and when i returned he left his spot and was trying to go into holes in my liferock.

    I have since caught him, way to easily. He is now just floating in the net. There are no spots on him and his gills look good. He is breathing heavily though. He is looking very healthy.

    Any thoughts.

    Not much you can do at this point. If you have methylene blue you can use that in a hospital tank to increase oxygenation. Chances are the whitespot has taken out it's gill function though.

    Sadly not. I am devastated. At least I know I tried everything I could to save it.
