Daino seems to have a bit of a problem, it is a white blob right behind the pectoral fin on her left side I removed her to inspect and it appears to be a rupure in her abdomin. Slight pressure on the abdomin causes more of the blob to bulge out, it appears to be flesh. inspecting the other 11 one other appears to have some iritation in the exact same spot. The fish swim and eat noramlly. I wich I could get a better picture but they are very fast.

Pima Fix? should I treat the tank or remove the affected fish and treat the fish.

most of the time we quarantine the sick fish.then we keep and eye on the others in the main tank to see whether they stay healthy of get sick too.if they stay fine we don't need to treat the whole tank if not well you'll have to find the root of the problem in the main tank and fix it while the fish are recuperating in the quarantine tank. hope you fishes get better soon.
