common ailments   3/1/14
Hello Bob. I have  2 strange cases going on in my tank, and have spent a few days searching and reading on possible causes. I have found very similar threads on WWB, that seem indicative on what is going on. I would like to state them and ask if my analysis seems right.
1. Miniatus grouper, (3 inches) has a very large eye on one side. It is not cloudy, suggesting it is a physical injury, and not an infection. My hypothesis here is either another fish, or a rock, caused this swelling. He still eats very good, Mysis, krill, clam etc, but the larger eye is very much noticeable. Treatment: good water quality and nutrition.
2. Indian Trigger (5 inches) Has white spots or patches on only one side of his body. Have developed there a few days ago, and have not spread or reduced any. Certainly do not believe it is parasitic in nature, Ich etc.
Again, physical injury/repair. Still eats anything I put in there, and doesn't any abnormal. Same scenario here as the aforementioned, good parameters and food.
I do have a .3 copper (Cupramine) in the tank. It has been in there about 3 weeks now, I was thinking this could be irritating/itchy the fish. On Monday, I will start to use poly pads to remove it.
What do you think of my diagnosis?
<As stated. B>
