So when I got my lights the other day I had to buy all his livestock as well. So I ended up with another pair of clowns, these are true percs and my other orange one is a false and the other a black and white. Anyway the male(smaller of the two) true percs that I just got must be getting picked on as it is now missing one of its bottom fins and looks like it has a hole or something eating away right above where the fin was.
I plan to catch it and put it in a bucket to treat but what do I need to treat with? I have some pics I will try to get on here soon.
Anyway I may have a pair of true percs for sale here soonConfused

The male that has the injury is a misbar?? It has a really cool looking bar and I love it but I don't know if they will get along any better in a bigger tank so I may have to get rid of them:(

Doesn't the club have a fish trap? I would really be interested in the perc's if my tomatoe clown was gone

I have a large bottle container like thing that is clear that may work as a trap. I am pretty good at catching fish so I would be more than willing to try when I come get those corals. I now have him pulled and in a bucket with an airstone and melafix.

How long should I leave him in the bucket with the melafix? I don't have a spare tank to put him in but I will put him in a little plastic box thing I have when he goes back in the tank so he can't be picked on.

When i used it, i would just put it directly into my tank and dose for a week or more. Make sure you arent running carbon with it though

I would rather not dose the whole tankConfused I will keep him in there for an hour or so and then put him in the plastic container when he goes back in the tank.

That's a pretty bad wound. Hope he makes it.

It actually looks a lot better tonight after just one treatment of melafix and being put in the box thing in the tank so no one can attack him.
