    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 :eek:
    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...:blush:..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...:blush:...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...?

    heheh fair point, although i was chuffed to get that pic :)

    actually mine is an easy fish to photograph, he is fat, confident and likes me so often comes forward for food.....but that series of pics was done with him inspecting his reflection. i dropped all the house lights and just had tank lights on so he was displaying some aggresion.

    thanks dallas, although frankly i trail in the dust of a number of forum members when it come to good photos.
