Hello, I am sort of new in TONMO, I have no idea if this is how I should start a new thread, but I am going to give it a go, hopefully someone can give me some advice.
I am wondering if anyone has seen a degeneration on Nautilus mantle, practically the tissue lose its color and texture and starting to look very white and sometimes fluffy, I have done scrapes and only found 3 pear like shape protozoans but there weren't very motile. As well, is there anyone here that has hear about doing fresh water baths on nautilus as a treatment for this?? Any help in the matter will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much

Infection is a common killer in the aquarium. Hopefully @gjbarord or @robyn will have a suggestion for diagnosis (photos?) and antibiotic treatment.
