Hello all. I was helping out at the LFS today cleaning tanks. One of the tanks had 1 iridescent shark in it. It had this white coating over his eyes. It didn't just coat the eye tho, there was so much of it that parts of it were hanging off and moving with the water flow. There was nothing else on the body.
It was pitiful. When I asked the owner what it was, she said she didn't know, had never seen it before and was treating it with melafix.
Any ideas on what it could be? I can't quit thinking about that poor fish.

BTW- It actually looks like cotton mouth/Chondrococcus columnaris but it's on the eyes only.

I've never heard of Furan. Asked lfs owner and she hadn't either, so I checked the larger chains in the area. They had never heard of it either so I looked it up online and sent her the links.
The iridescent still has the coating on the eye but it doesn't look as thick, so maybe what she's doing is working. Thankfully she doesn't have a shared water system between her tanks.
Thanks,
Donna
