    The spots lasted one day and now my blenny/fox face have cloudy eyes...this 180 has not been nice to fish

    however my corals are doing great, I have always had success with fish but never coral...the tide has shifted I guess

    It happens sometimes. Try feeding Black Worms. Should help them with building a stronger immune system

    Bump up the water changes to a higher %. Should eliminate the need for dosing right now

    I know it would but it costs more money and I dont want an ultra low nutrient system...dosing is better and more stable for mag

    I believe I don't have ich...pretty sure it's flukes

    cloudy eyes on the fox face/blenny, female clown twitching her head and flashing sometimes

    The spots on the Fox Face were larger and spread apart, plus there were only 3 that lasted all of a day...now the Fox Face has a rip in his tailfin where a spot was

    Thank goodness, it is flukes!!! Just got a really good look at my Fox Face and could see the flukes in his eyes

    I dosed the tank with prazipro, did 45ML which does 200 gallons...I figured that's prob what my total volume is, it would be 240 gallons but have to account for rock

    however kind of pissed that the fish with flukes are from LA DD...I know they brought it in because my clowns never had symptoms and had been treated with prazi before returning to the display
