    Guys,
    I have a three stripe damsel who has been In quarantine for about four weeks, but about two weeks ago he developed some kind of cyst on his eye, there are no other spots on his body.
    This spot seems to be too large to be ich and too persistent.
    The fish is still aggressively eating and very active, and breathing is normal.
    Nitrates: 5 Nitrite:0 Ammonia:0
    10gallon quarantine
    salinity 1.025

    might be an external parasite like a isopod.

    Thanks riaan! Do you think a methylene blue dip should get rid of it?

    first try to net the fish or get it into a much smaller glass box or glass so that you can be sure what it is.
