    0 Not allowed!
    Hi, 2 days ago this rozy barb has stopped eating and today i saw that he has a weired growth in his "chin". It is seemed to come from under his skin . right now he is isolated in a small 10 liter tank with filter{he is 4 cm long}
    and he came from an aquarium with 12 nirate 0 amonia and 0 nitrit.
    Do ou have any idea wht is this? He is a bit less active them usual..

    I've learned you cannot ID Lymphocystis without a swab. Lymphocystis cause a group of cells to enlarged resulting in a cauliflower looking cyst. The cysts can be anywhere, it can more than one cyst. There are lots of different cysts and tumours fish get. It looks like it could be Lymphocystis based on images and research I've done.

    But the good thing is, the virus doesn't really impair the fishes' health if you keep the water clean, prestine and feed a good diet. The leision may go into remission, but the fish will carry the virus for life. For that reason, it's best to keep the fish isolated for its life since the virus is highly contagious to any tankmates and even the tanks he was in cannot be reused until it is sanitized with a 9:1 water:bleach solution for 30 minutes. Any tankmates will be carriers of the virus and spread it.

    That said, the lesions themselves are not life threatening but the virus may lesson the fishes overall immune and the slightest water disruption can cause secondary problems.

    I know, I have a forever QT Lymphocystis tank in my spare bedroom. The fish that came in with the suspected Lymph are already dead, the 18 fish I got with the lymph infected fish are down to a group of 4, I only lost one of my own fish in the same tank.

    It was suggested to me by members here to keep the tank where the lymph suspected fish was separate for the life of the fish on that tank. So no plant transfers, not even a drop of water of your fingers when feeding. Disinfect all seperated equipment to not re-infect. Do tank maintenance on alternate days from this tank.

    The other thing suggested is to rehome the fish and make sure the new owner knows the fish might have been in contact with the virus.

    Sorry, it sucks hardcore. I'm in the same boat.

    The "tumor" hast grown for the past 3 days and he might got a bit smaller. I think this means its probebly not lymphocyties beacause from what ive read it shuold be getting bigger for a few weeks. However his belly seems puff and he is pooping white stringy poo so im thinking start metro treatment, what do you think?

    White stringy poop usually equals internal parasites, but not necessarily the type treated with Metro.
    @Rocksor might know about lesions and internal parasites.

    Which other meds do you have? Particularly do you have praziquantal, Levamisole, fenbenzadole, flubenzadole ect?

    Also letting food soak in Epsom salts (only add enough mixture to absorb completely into pellet food and let dry) can act as a diuretic to help fish pass parasites. It's best to feed Epsom Salts simultaneously with parasite treatment.

    There was also this thread on feeding Epsom Salts when all else fails, particularly referring to Hexamita.
