    Looks like Lymphocystis?

    Hello, I was hoping someone might give their thoughts on my new girl (attached). She has one eye that swelled and turned white, and she has chunky white stuff on her chin. The chin sorta gets better and worse depending on the day. I'm thinking the chin is Lymphocystis? For the eye, it...

    Thank you mcgyvr, they do look ok in the pics, but previous to this last couple months they were much more extended and flowy. The green on the star polyps is only millimetres extended rather than looking like short grass like it should :( The xenia used to be big poofs of white rather than...

    Clown won't leave host coral to eat

    Hello everyone, we have a single perc that has been happy and healthy for about a year. He's been hosting a fairly large frogspawn for about 7 months. In the last week he's been so obsessed with it that he won't stop wriggling around in it even to eat. He still seems normal otherwise, happy...
