I noticed after the water change, it got a little better and I'm waiting to see big changes after adding the (kordon brand) medication yesterday
I hope this works out for you. Sincerely.
That being said, I have to add some personal experiences after reading this thread. I would not hesitate to suggest that most fish deaths in marine aquariums are caused by quick, unnecessary reactions. Adding medications without cause generally causes more harm than good.
Bottom line, any time you are unsure of what you are observing, the best action is no action. Just sit back and wait. Unusual color changes, bumps, bruises, isolated white spots, black spots, and other random observations are best left alone until further evidence is available to provide direction for the proper action. The large majority of the time the fish will recover without incident, if the fishkeeper simply allows the natural immunity of the fish to do what it does best.
