    Can somebody tell me more about it? I went to one of my LFS yesterday and was talking to the employee. I showed him a picture of my now dead porc and told him how after that all my puff's died but no other fish is affected by this disease. He told me it was Clownfish disease and he told me a few ways to treat the tank but all of them mean I have to take the fish out and put them in a seperate tank. I have no problem doing that but I'd want to medicate them too incase they have the disease so what is the best medicine to treat the fish with?
    Sorry that I rambled a bit.

    The disease is brooklynella, caused by a parasite. It is usually just seen in clownfish, but in a community tank, it is possible for other fish to contract it. There are some pictures examples of the disease in the Diseased Fish thread at the top of this forum.
