i looked up some pictures of anchor worm, i don't think that's it but also just now i noticed a dark green thing and a light brown/orangish thing hanging out of the fish's side again... then it fell out and sank to the bottom where it's just sitting motionless... is it possible the fish had an intestinal blow out and the green stuff is algae and the brown/orangish stuff is flake food? so wierd.

At this point I'd say anything is possible. I didnt see anything for sure. I'm inclined to believe it has to be a parasite or infection. I'll keep digging and report back if I find anything.
