Fish Lice

I believe my Maroon Clown has 2 hitch hikers on him, they are visible in the water, looks like grayish bumps. I removed him from the water and tried to pull them off with tweezers but it felt like bone so I stopped. Any suggestions??

Can you take a picture of it?



I'm guessing it's an isopod, if so you'll want to do a formalin dip.

Will take picture tonight, not sure how good the quality will be but I will do my best. I believe it is an isopod too! :-(
