    Hi everyone.

    I've come across something I havent seen before. I purchased a new orange spotted sleeper goby and within one day I noticed that it had bruise like marks on both sides of its stomach in exactly the same spot on both sides.

    I was thinking perhaps it has been attached by my blennies which is unusual as they are usual compatible species.

    But I was also thinking the bruises were perfectly on both sides of it's body and also it didnt seem to have a cut or abrasions as such and wondered whether it could perhaps have been a disease of some type or anything else you can think of that has occured on the inside rather than from an attack from the outside of its body.

    It has passed away already after only two days in the tank from its wounds.

    any help will be much appreciated.

    cheers Grant
