    Hi Guys

    My Anthea's tail has a big bite out of it.

    Is is it fin rot or an overly aggressive Clown. (I have 2 Antheas, 2 Clows and a Blennie)

    Thanks
    Fanie

    looks like a bite to me. feed your fish garlic rich foods for the next few days/weeks and its should be fine

    I just saw on some of you'r previous posts that the Fishy's came 2 weeks ago...

    sooo..being in the tank for the 1st time.. could it maybe be a "hitchhiker" of some sorts that maybe came with the LR...(does kind of look like a bite...especially if you imagine the tail "closed"...then nipped at)..:p

    Having said that..I have to also mention that you are new to the Hobby and probably haven't got the hang of the whole saltwater thing...so it could still be, in all likelyhood..you'r water quality..

    Hi all,

    Thank you for your advice.

    My water properties seem to be in check. Nitrates and Phosphates a bit high, but I will check tonight.
    The Blennie is rather aggro ...

    I will lace their food with garlic and do a water change tomorrow.

    Fanie
