PostSubject: Large white patch on l144   Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:29 pm

I have a female l144 bristlenose that had had a white spot on her since I bought her a few months ago, It now has got slightly bigger, but I may be paranoid. She laid eggs 2 weeks ago, and seems to be acting normally. I wanted an expert eye to look over her. Waiting on picture uploading.

Tank size and setup:

Substrate:

filtration (Internal, external, flow rate, last cleaned and what it was cleaned in):

Airstone/sponge filter etc:

Inhabitance:

Fish affected by issue (all/bottom dwellers, all bristlenose or a single fish etc):

Feeding system (what, how much, how often):

current water change system (before illness appeared):

water changes made since illness appeared:

As many levels as you know (pH, Ammonia, nitrate, nitirite, KH, GH, TDS, aanything you can find out, your local fish shop should be able to help with this):

any chemicals used (including carbon/chemical fitration inside the filter):

water source and treatment:

Major changes in the last 3 weeks (new fish, new plants, new anything or changes):

Symptoms (gasping, not moving, bloated, spots, wounds, stressed colours etc):

Pictures:

Until pics are available, please fill the formula, so we could get a sense of the environment your BN lives in.

Your picture has now been approved I am assuming it is this one.



My first thought was Nodular disease caused by Sporozoans, but it's not something I have seen in real life, only in books, so can not be positive. For now I would isolate the fish to hospital tank, if possible due to the risk of contagion, untill other views are expressed.

Dunno, but has a striking resemblance to lipoma.
