I can’t tell from the photo. Is the mucous spreading? Please search for brooklynella to see if the images look similar.

Symptoms include excessive mucous production and white “fuzz” or “rashes” on the skin. Infected fish will also show an increased respiration rate and tend to act listlessly.

Lost the royal gramma and now the other Ocellaris.
Everyone else doing fine.
Dont want to lose more fish how long before I add new fish? With a fallow tank Id wait 3 months. Thoughts?

If you truly had brooklynella then a 6 - 8 week fallow period would be sufficient. But to go fallow, you would have to take your current fish out and put them into quarantine.

Alternatively, wait the full 3 months and see how your current fish do. Then while you are waiting, quarantine any new fish that you buy.

Best of luck.

Read the following article.

I would say your tank needs to have no fish for a minimum of 3 weeks and a couple months to be sure.
