Actually, I haven't seen him today because I'm at work but my wife says he's fine. I was going to net him tomorrow for a closer exam but my last look just showed the spot looking reddish which I'm hoping is a sign of healing. He still doesn't eat much - I even tried live brine shrimp yesterday. He didn't take any while I was there. I did notice some of the stringy poop yesterday or the day before so things aren't healed yet but I guess it's only been 4 days.

Thanks for asking...I'll give you updates as they happen. Hopefully I can break free from work and give you a report in person on Saturday!

And...some good news (not April Fool's either)! Looks like G. Clooney is well on the road to recovery. I netted him for a quick look and his white spot is about a quarter of the size is was and the intestinal thing looks like its over. I saw him eat some more brine shrimp too so a few more days in the qt and it looks like Mr. Clooney will be back home in the main tank again.

Thanks for everybody's help - it's great to have friends to give you advice!
