View Full Version : Magnificant Firefish

Magnus the Mag. Firefish passed away suddenly yesterday. I recently moved my tank to make space for my new one, emptied about 2/3 of the water and a few pieces of rock and slid it to it's new location about 10 feet away. I couldn't catch him since he had a cave dug under one of the rocks so I left him there while I moved the tank. That's the last time I saw him out. I'm thinking maybe the move/water change stressed him out too much. Also 2 days after, the power went out for about 5 hours possibly stressing him even more. Anyway my wife found him floating belly up yesterday afternoon. After I removed him I also noticed a small white speck on the side of my clown. Hoping it isn't what I think it is........

Sorry to here about your loss, hopefully the white speck is nothing on the clown, but keep an eye on it and maybe add more garlic and selcon to your feeding.

Maybe I'm just paranoid. I noticed the spot 2 days ago and it hasn't spread or anything. She seems fine, active and she's eating well.

Being paranoid is part of the game. my flame angel had 3 white spots once, and I was thinking the worse, in the end those spots stayed for about a month then disappeared and have never came back.

white spots can sometimes be a grain or two of sand... :)
