Amano turning white

Hey guys:. Any tips for a sluggish Amano that is turning white/opaque? Never a good sign... he is a new arrival from a week ago. Acclimated him for 2 hrs from LFS....I did a water change yesterday and he perked up a little.

It had molted just a few days ago so thought it couldn't be that again. But I hope you're right.

Hopefully just prolonged stress and not an infection. Not very white but still concerning.

Update: return to health! Phew. And eating an outbreak of a light brown puffy algae strain I hadn’t seen in 3 years.
