    Hi All

    I woke up this morning to find a big white spot, with a black dot in the centre of it, on my sailfin tang. Please see photo attached (apologies for poor quality).

    Does anyone know what this is and what caused it? Is it dangerour / lethal and what now?

    He was fine last night, fed normally and this morning he seemed fine.

    Any help appreciated!

    maybe he snagged himself against a rock in the tank?

    is it a open sore or just a spot

    Hi Maj

    It doesn't look like an open sore to me. It is almost like that area was "bleached". I am scheduled for a water change today but have decided to wait a day or two in order to NOT stress this boytjie. All other fish seem fine.

    It could be a parasite if not a sore from a knick on the rocks? Hope its not
