Forget the blue for now, He initially had a pretty classic case of velvet, of that I am 110% certain. What makes me so sure he had velvet at least up until the flubendazole was appearance of the 'gold' on fins, the top one in particular. It appeared to have a very grainy(as in tv grainy) appearance up close, and during peroxide treatments, would noticeably fizz/melt/disappear in small patches nearest the drop of peroxide, revealing seemingly normal colored fin tissue beneath, and the fish seemed happier after the first few peroxide treatments as if they were helping. Gently rubbing his top fin with a peroxide soaked q tip (underwater, of course) seemed to have a similar noticeable effect. In both cases, by the next day any 'holes' made would be back to golden. As far as I know, which is admittedly not much on this, but I don't think natural iridescence would come off or behave like that. Could it?
