Got a Banggai yesterday from LFS
, must stress it came home FINE from him...
Got up this morning & it has a lump attached to it, couldn't really see whether it was part of the fish or not, looked not though.....
It was suggested a fresh water dip might remove it if it wasn't part of the fish, now considering I killed a strawberry fish last week trying to remove it from my tank I was more than a little apprehensive about this!!
Anyways got the water ready, took 5 mins to catch the Banggai & dipped him, within a few sec's the "lump" was moving around the fish! But it wouldn't let go... After a min the Banggai started to look stressed so I got him in the net again & managed to just pull this thing off
It looks like a woodlice with a nasty set of jaws at the front & shrimp like swimming gear at the rear & boy can it move!
Its full of blood from my Cardinal, But atleast its off & the Cardinal doesn't look to unhappy now its back in the tank... So fingers crossed he'll be ok?
Any thoughts as to just what it is? I can try & take a picture of it in the test tube if anybody wants a closer look?
