My 6 line wrasse has what I think is Lymphocystis. He has a small, white lumpy growth behind one of his pectoral fins (in his "armpit", I guess you could say). It appeared a couple of days ago and has visibly grown. So far it is not affecting his swimming although he can't put the fin flat against his side anymore. The fish is also quite happy and eating in his usually piggy way. The little I have read there is essentially no treatment but I just wanted to check......

No treatment but QT is probably best.
