When I first got Victor, I thought he had Ich, so I treated him for that. But he's always had this lump on his head, and sometimes gets them on his face. I've been treating him with everything I could for the past 3 months, I've tried aquarium salt, epsom salt, QuickCure, Stress Coat, even stopped using tap water to eliminate that as a possible cause. Nothing has helped. They just get worse or go away at random, I guess just whenever his immune system tries to fight it.
He always acts happy and never acts sick, not even when he had "Ich", which I'm starting to suspect might have been the beginnings of Lymphocystis, which is sometimes mistaken for Ich.
Oldfishlady pointed me in the direction of this illness, and from watching his bumps, I'm starting to think that's what it is.
Anyone had any experience with this illness? Anything that I can do to boost his immune system? Is this illness painful for him or will effect his quality of life?
Thank you all so much in advance!!
