    Help ID algae or seaweed!?!

    Tank is a e170, to small for a tang 😢. Guess I will just have to keep an eye on it and pull it as I see it pop up. It gows in the center of a zoa garden so its hard to see the runners.

    Found this stuff again. Here are a few more photos. The runners really latch on to the rock. Still only on one rock. Any ideads of what it may be? Should I consider adding an emerald crab, maybe it would eat it?

    Thanks for following up 😁. It looks like it is very slowly healing. Her personality has not changed at all. Got my fingers crossed that it completely heals up but at this rate it may take a month or so.

    Sounds like it was for the better.

    Also Prime claims to help restore slime coat. Is there an advantage to stresscoat over prime? If I can not net her would there be any disadvantage to just dosing prime to the display directly? I had a small ammonia spike about a year and half ago and dosed directly to tank for 2 days while doing water changs and had no ill effects. I also use prime when doing water changes on my planted tank so I have it on hand.

    I may be able to net her without having to remove any rock work. What would you recommend for ratio of sw to stresscoat for the bath and how long of a bath?

    1. It has been about 3 weeks. 2. I believe there are scales missing. It looks fairly raw, but not 100% sure as she is so active all the time it is hard to get a look for longer then half a second. I was just able to get a somewhat better photo with flash. 3. She occasionally will flash against the sand but does not favor one side as opposed to the other. I have assumed the flashing against the sand as just normal clown behavior. She has done this for the 2 1/2 uears I have had her and never seen her do it against rocks. More like she is stirring the sand then flashing. I have added nothing to my tank in 6-7 months. These two things have steered me away from really considering a parasite. 4. No swelling that I can tell. 5. She seems to swim completely normal. All her fins seem fine. 6. Seems the same size as when it appeared. 7. Two and a half years. She will not stay still long enough for a good photo. I have probably tried to take 50 photos and this is the best I could get. I may have to pull out the gopro and film her so I can screenshot a decent photo if necessary.

    That has been my thought, if its just a wound and as long as she continues to act normal I feel ot may be more stressful to remove her. I know stress can make things worse sometimes. I have not introduced anything new to the tank in months so I am fairly confident its not a parasite.

    I wouldnt medicate my display. If meds are needed I will definitely set up a qt.

    I do have a few flower anemones not sure how bad their sting would be, and they do fight a lot less but have short more violent fights when they do. So probably just a wound of somesort. I dont have a qt is it something that I should set up or would it be more stressful to remove her from her home of 2 1/2 years? If qt the best option should I be treating the water with any medication?

    Can the anemone sting and leave that big of a wound on a clown? If so Im not to concerned as it would just be part of the hosting process and the wound should heal.

    She is acting normal. Both my clowns have always done the shaking. The did seem to do it more when they were younger and fighting for dominance bit now the female is clearly the boss. When they do fight now they dont seem to do the shake as often but are more aggressive in their quick fights.
