and when he does Hundreds of little white circles fly out into the water.
Is this a parasite or is he shedding something off his suckers.
The white circles are not uniform in size they range from very small to about 1/8 inch. They are all perfectly white and perfectly round.

If its a Parasite how do I treat it?
If its not a parasite is it normal behaviour?

Freaking thing is like my kids every time he sneezes I lose 2 years off my life worrying about him.

Hi
perfectly normal, that's just the cuttle shedding the top layer off its suckers, nothing to worry about :smile:
