    Hi Peeps,

    My Naso has seemed to have sprouted spots in the last few hours, any guesses?

    Water parameters are:

    NO3 os 0.75
    PO4 is 0.08
    Ph is 8.2
    Ca is 460
    Alk is 9.2
    Mg 1430
    REDOX is at 324MV,
    doing water change later today(wed is water change day, about 12%).
    Ate very well this morning, and doesn't seem perturbed.
    Maybe stung my my anemone or hammer? :confused1:
    here is the pic:

    Did the spots on Naso disappear? What was the cause?

    Mine developed the same spots recently, but he looks fine and eat very well.

    Howdy @Floyd, yes the spots disapeared after a day or two. I think it was to do with the it being stung by one of my frog spawns or hammer corals.

    Yes he was a nice fish, I sold him over a year ago to a reefer called @Fires. Not sure how he is doing these days.

    Fires system is shut down. Do not know what happened to the livestock. The equipment got sold on Dorry Pets secondhand area, so I assume the livestock went to them as well.

    that is a nice tank
    As far as I know,it is still available as a secondhand tank at Dorry Pets. 4 sides viewable cube rimless and not mistaken it was starfire. Beauty of a tank, if as in your setup you can walk around the tank.
