Help! New Green Clown Goby Bumps

Heya Guys,

I need your help -- this is my first saltwater tank. I got this Goby yesterday and he has been hiding. He finally came out and my heart dropped.. What is this?? It looks like pimples with white behind. I have seen ich in my freshwater and it looks alot different than this. I am not really sure if he'd been eating well.. I havent seen him eat (feeding Rod's fish only) Any help appreciated..



Thanks in advance

-Brian

These are not white "salt" spots they are raised bumps with a white pearl inside..

Wow he's a beauty! It sure does look like Ich to me. I hope you're able to get him to eat.

Keep us posted and good luck.

Thanks, I agree!

So guys.. I agree as well. Ich. I went to another LPS and they recommended getting "Ich Attach" since its reef safe. Trying that now..

I need to get a DERN Q tank going!

I agree, as you would just need to use Hypo Salinity to get rid of Ich. You would not need any meds.
