    Hi guys

    I have had this sandsifting goby for a few months now, and i noticed this morning there was a dark spot on his nose, under the skin discoloration of sorts...Anyone seen this before?

    mmm... an odd one. it could be a larval cestode encysted in the tissue but this is a guess rather than anything of substance. If the fish is behaving normally and the blob is not getting larger, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Regards
