    Try and grab a pic. Fish disease are hard to diagnose, pics help.

    The good camera's batteries are charging and the pics I took with my phone don't really show anything (v poor lighting in the QT)

    I'll try to get better pics when the battery is charged

    I know it sorta looks like there are spots on his fins, but I don't see those when I look at it normally.

    Okay, a few more diagnostic bits. Fed them a small bit of frozen mysis shrimp today. The other two chromis attacked it with the fury of the gods, but the sick one didn't move from his spot, even when a piece floated by.

    Its breathing isn't even a little bit labored; if anything, it breaths more slowly than the others. Looking closer at the dorsal fin, there still aren't spots, but there are what appear to be gaps or bites or something. Perhaps it was bullied somewhat.

    So, I just went to the LFS and got API Pimafix. I haven't dosed it yet, but figured that I might as well have it.

    Could very well be bullying. A school of three isn't really a school, two generally gang up and pick on one when you get three of a schooling fish. I had three chromis as well, and 2 of the three ended up carpet surfing. I think they just chase each other til one tries a jump and ends up on the floor. I've had a single chromis now for weeks with no darting or jumps.

    Can't really see the lump on the head you were referring to earlier, as the spots on the fins look the same as the mark on the head.

    Maybe someone more disease-savvy will chime in.

    I'm so used to taking pics in iso mode without flash, I forgot I had flash and I think got a better pic with it.

    Could it be Marine Ich?

    I'm less inclined to believe it's ich today. The spot haven't spread. It's moved from the side of the powerhead to first the bottom right then left corner of the tank. I'd also swear the fins are getting worse (and not from bullying, I put a divider in the QT, the others can't get to him)

    Maybe something bacterial? Sorry, in my years of freshwater, all I ever encountered were Ich, fungus, and dropsy and then only rarely, so I don't know much at all about diseases.

    Sorry to keep posting on and on, but I get really super worried when a fish is sick

    Update: It got much better for a bit, became completely active and normal, but now has declined again. Right now it's swimming along the very bottom gulping very heavily for air and there's a red spot on one side right next to the back fin.

    Looks a bit like Hemorrhagic Septicemia. I don't really have another tank I can put it in, just the QT, should I separate him from the others?
