    Default Looking for a diagnosis Pls HELP


    0 Not allowed!
    I received a demon shipment of fish from Angelfins in Guelph Ontario Canada on Oct 4th. I think there's 11 kerri tetras left, (from 18!) and I humanely put the rams down. This absolutely takes the cake for a nightmare shipment of fish. I've never had such a bad experience EVER! This is pretty much driving me insane, and I feel very alone and helpless since no one seems to know yet what is happening. So I'm looking for any insight as to what's ailling my tank!

    This video was taken the first day I received the fish


    This one was taken the day after and concentrating on the rams with odd bumps and growths. One ram had really bad growths on its head.


    Fast forward two weeks, I'm treating for anchor worm
    I also noticed a couple funny looking kerri tetras, this one being the worst. Deformed, skinny, and white color around its middle.


    Then 3 1/2 weeks after receiving the fish, this emerged on the side of the same tetra in the last vid.


    I'm trying to figure out of this kerri tetra has the same thing as the ram.

    I was never able to have the ailment diagnosed for 100% certainty, but my best guess was Lymphocystis virus. If the tetra has developed Lymphocystis, then it means the virus can be shared between fish species and it can manifest within a month. Lymphocystis is so under researched, I have so many questions, some may be answered if this looks like Lymphocystis. What else could it be?

    If anyone has any comments, questions, or best guess diagnosis based on observation, I'd love to hear from you!!!!

    I forgot to mention that within a week, I moved all the fish from the 40g QT tank (broke it down & disinfect) to a 20g forever QT tank away from all other tanks. I keep the tank pretty "blackwater" cause I've found IALs really help with keeping infection and fungus away. Not so much weird growth things and anchor worm

    Agree ^ Good suggestion.

    Kat, I also really hope you can gather some good educated guesses on this, along with some recommendations of how best to move forward as a responsible keeper. Best wishes for you, toward that path.

    Here is a pic of the ram's head. And pics of the kerri tetra.

    Does it look like the same thing to you?

    They don't look similar to me, but I don't know what I'm looking at, either

    Thanks for moving the thread :) Now I know there's a disease section lol!

    I'm trying to show the growths on the ram's head, and comparing it to the growths on the tetras flank. The ram had growths on the inside of its gills as well on the right side. It looks very similar to me, especially now that I see how it turns up in pics. The lesions on the kerri tetra are uneven with 2 or 3 protuding white spots, similar to how it looks on the ram, but the white seems whiter?

    It could by all means be something else, but I haven't been able to get a guess diagnosis since this whole thing started last month :(

    Yeah, I see the growths, but don't know what they are, unfortunately
