    Eye Bubble?!?!

    Hey... New member here, having a little problem: so one of my 2 yellow tailed blue damsels has what looks like a white bubble forming over his left eye... wondering if anyone knows what this is, if its treatable or if it is something that can be caught by any of my other fish...

    QT= Quarantine tank OR HT=Holding/Hospital tank

    We had a similar problem with our clown fish. Turns out he had been bit by our coral bandid shrimp (caught him in the act). He did recover.

    You should post some pics, we all love pics!! Oh yeah and its helpful to help diagnose! :P
