looks like lymphocystis from the picture in my disease and treatment book they say it wil spread to the mouth soon and the only way to cure it is to cut off the portion of the fin where it is at.Wait for beth she'll know for sure im just going by what my book looks like.
Hope This Helps,


i will get some zoe tomarrow. i do 10-15% water changes every monday. day old salt water. i do not aerate. i just got a RO for the tank 2 months ago. everything reeds ok. sal 1.024 ph 8.2 ammo 0 trates10 trites0

optimize nutrition. I would add some fresh seafoods to the mix. READ up on this particular fish's dietary needs, and ensure that you address it.
Add zoecon as a vit supplement.


i have continued to add garlic extract 2-3 times a week.
i am soaking all food in zoe, but the majestic still has Lympho.
he loves brine shrimp and picks at the rock constantly but will not eat much else.
i have tried:
algea waffers
live brine
angel formula
mega marine angel
he is fattening up, but the lympho is getting slightly worse.
still doing 15% water changes once a week w/ ro.
any other suggestions?????
