Garlic, Not just for fish but on us too, IMHO

Glad to hear recovering on its own. Have you stepped up with maintenance since beginning of mishap?

Although pics were blur, those pic def refreshed my memory of Myco.

Anyway, keep us posted!

No, I haven't changed my maintenance routine at all. I'm already doing exactly what I think needs to be done. I don't fiddle around with saltwater. I stick to my routine, which is part of what I credit for the success I've had with my systems.

It has been twelve days since my first post and the fish appears to be healthy again. Just the slightest bit of sensitive appearance where the white growth was. Assuming no secondary infections set in, it appears the fish recovered on its own.

I am now of the opinion, after some offline conversations, that this was probably just an allergic reaction. Perhaps it was stung by the Rabbitfish or slashed by a Tang.

Fully "cured" with no signs of other infections. It is like nothing ever happened. Very odd, but I'll take the good luck!

I'm glad it's all resolved and that your fish has recovered. :)

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
