    Hi all , see pics attached, does anyone know what this disease is? I thought velvet, but not sure. No other fish in the tank infected. I have added a butterfly and angel recently, assuming there brought this disease with them.

    I also have carpet anemones, perhaps this could be a sting

    Any help greatly received

    Yeah, doesn’t seem to be a sting. As the Dr said, brook. What kind of qt process did you use? Any proactive treatments?

    Thanks both

    Standard 6 weeks quarantine for the new fish,although the trigger has been in the tank for a year. Interesting as I have clowns showing no side effect s as of yet.

    I hear freshwater dip is an option, I'll try that in the first instance!

    A 90 minute bath using Ruby Reef Rally would be another good option.
