Hi there,

I have a Vlamingi tang (it’s only been 2 days) but he/she has developed some spotting on the body and there isn’t much information out there that indicates if this is normal for a juvenile or if this could be white spot.

I’ve attached some pictures that I’ve taken just now - any help/advice or opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks marine friends :)

Hi they look to big to be ich but I might be wrong. Looks a bit like stress spots that will stop showing when it settles.
Keep a eye on it and keep it well fed with a variety of foods and nori

Hi Tim

Thanks for replying to my post - that’s really helpful information.

The whiteness looks different depending on the lighting which confuses the hell out of me as to what it could be, this morning there is less whiteness so it makes sense that it is stress related. I’ll give him time to settle.

Thanks again :)
