    Noticed a bit of something going on yesterday morning on my way out, got back this afternoon and it had deteriorated fin wise. Still swimming around but fins had got worse and it had started to constantly swim against the flow of a power head (sw4). Got lucky catching it by getting the net behind it and just letting the flow of the power head push it into the net. At the moment nothing else in the tank looks affected (touching wood). Nothing new added for about 2 months (coral beauty) and had this fella for about 4yrs.

    Not really a good sign when they swim towards the powerhead,looking for more oxygen,its when it gets in their gills,its a problem.
