Atari,

Here you go . . .

Nitrite = <0.1 ppm

Amonia = 0 ppm

Nitrate = < 5.0 ppm

Salt = 1.022 g/cm

I do not have any other tests kits than those listed. However, my LFS tested everything (yesterday) as described among other tests as well.

I did contact a second reputable LFS store for there reccomendation. They felt that the direction that I am taking was a good solution to the problem. They also reccommended that I could take the fish out and scrape off the white material on the fish. Have you ever done this? Am I better off just leaving the fish alone and let nature take it's course? Appreciate your input. Thanks again.

I would definately suggest a few water changes over the next week with well aged SW to get that nitrite down to zero. That will hamper the fish's ability to kick the problem. Also ensure it get's vitamin fortified foods high in [acronym="Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acid"]HUFA[/acronym]'s such as Selcon or Zoecon. Water quality and diet are paramount in getting rid of the Lympho.

This is actually not very recommended unless the fish's gills or mouth are being affected. The Lympho may look unsightly but as long as the fish can breath and eat properly is absolutely no danger to the fish.

Cheers

Hey Guys,

Thanks for your advice. It is greatly appreciated. I feed my fish ONLY Life Line Herbivore Minced Frozen Tropical Fish Food (Cube) by Biotope Research. It states "Now More Viatamins. I always thaw the food before feeding, and generally feed 1/4 of a cube once a day. I ffed a little at a time, watch the tank, and ensure that all fish eat.

The analysis is:

5.3% Crude Protein (Minimum)
2.2% Fat (Minimum)
1.2% Crude Fiber (Maximum)
86.2% Moisture (Maximum)

This food comes highly reccommended by my LFS. Please let me know if you think this is acceptable, or if I should look for your suggested choice.

P.S. Sometimes my Cleamer Shrimp grab food, quite often not. I am assuming that they scavenger around my tank and eat?

Thanks.

OK - I get it. Selcon is a fish food adititve that I can add to my existing cube food. I will check with my LFS to see if they have any.

I would still keep a close watch and be ready to treat just in case with a qt system. If is is a parasite, it can strike fast.
