View Full Version : Fishy infections

12-20-2014, 01:28 AM
During 40 years of FW and close to 3 of SW I've never seen this one ...

Sorry, no pics

I have some Lyretail Anthias in QT

2 of the 5 had little white 'horns' on their heads. They protruded much more than any cyst. More like a tube, and literally looked like horns

At about 8 days the little horns disappeared
One of the infected now has an indentation on top of her head, behind her eyes, so obviously there was some tissue degradation there

I haven't started Prazi yet as I'm still ensuring they are fat, and before I do I thought I'd check with the collective

I don't want to start throwing meds at the tank as the last time I did that I lost some thought-to-be healthy fish

Any thoughts ?

These little white "horns", what size would they be?
Diameter and length?

They looked to be about 1mm thick and maybe as much as 2mm long

almost sounds like some sort of worm
