Photo #2 - I Think I Finally Found Why Coral's Been Loa...

Submitted By: Iulia Georgescu on
Photo Caption: I think I finally found why Coral's been loafing in the plants. From what I've read, this is most probably black ich (Diplopstomiasis). It took me a while to notice this because he naturally has black spots on him. I only noticed because they got bigger. : But his belly is also bigger than usual (can't see that very well in this picture).. I haven't been feeding him more than usual. Any ideas why? I want to know what is wrong with him before I start any treatments.
