what kind of parasite? What did it look like? Was there a lot or are you just talking about a single parasite? What kind of fish?

Have you seen any more parasites? What is the setup of the quarantine tank? Lifecycle may be similar to the fish lice a lot of us have always known.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
