    I noticed tonight that my coral beauty has a ring around its eye that is discolored. It's only on one side. He seems to be fine otherwise. I was hoping to treat with some form of antibiotic. Can anyone make a suggestion? I assume I need to remove carbon from the tank and treat for 5 - 10 days. Just not sure what to treat with, what to expect and what my success rate might be.

    Breath. If he's still eating and acting fine, tueres no need to worry. Pulling him out to treat will just cause more stress and make it worse. Leave him be and if it gets worse or doesn't get any better in 7-10 days, let us know.
