Bicolour Blenny Irritation
Over the past couple of days my bicolour blenny has been scratching himself against the rocks. At first i thought that he must might have just knocked himself on a rock but the irritation seems to have spread to the otherside in a matt grey colour around about 7mm in size on both side. I can't see any white spots so I don't think that it is ich, but every so often i can see a little matt white spot which is around 2-3mm long but it seems to dissapear so i'm not sure whether it's his colouring since he changes colours. He is eating well and quite active, though he breathes quite heavily but he has done that since i got him a month ago. The rest of the fish in the tank are quite normal with no signs of distress.
I have recently added a jardinei coral which is kept away from everything else and a brain coral to the tank, my tank readings such as pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrates are all where they should be. I use reverse osmosis water in the tank with no additives other than salt.
So i'm at a bit of a loss as to what is wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.
