    White stuff on the top of head

    My Maroon Clown (I think it is juvenile still) has white stuff on the top of its head across to the dorsal fin and on the top of the eye skin. It is kind of fluffy looking and it is not spotty like ick. The fish is eating and swimming fine and it does not seem to bother it in any way. The fish is alone in a 12 g nano with a few red mushrooms and green poylps. Any idea what it is and what I can do.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hey Mark,

    Does it look like Cotton ? If yes it could probably be Fungus, If he has fungus you will need to take him out of the tank and treat hi with E.M Tablets (Excellent Treatment).

    Thanks for the advice Mike, I could not find EM Tabs so I have been treating the fish with API's PIMAFIX for fungal and bacterial infections and it seems to be doing the job nicley.
