    Hi guys. I got this guy about two weeks ago from our lfs.

    I have a separate qt tank where he is currently in.
    He has a lite degree of whitespot which I am currently treating with cupramine.
    Started with the treatment on Friday, so Sunday was the full dosage.

    He also has some marks which seems like bruises, I noticed the owner of the store had some difficulty catching him and he bumped into a few things. The marks were not so prominent until 2 days ago.

    He is eating well, he eats nori, pellets and veggie flakes. He is nice and fat.

    Here are some pics, I would love any help from you guys.

    Thanks

    Maybe boost his food with garlic and vitamins

    Yep, just let him finish his quarantine period & dont stress him out too much.
    He should be just fine after a week or so...

    Totally agree, if he's eating all good. If they stop eating get worried.
