More problems, clown has white lump on fin

My moms 2 week old clown in here nano has a roundish shaped white lump on it's back between it's 2 fins. Could this be Brooklynella hostilis? Amonia/nitrates/nitrites are all 0, SG 1.025. I don't know why we've been having bad luck with sick fish lately

Brooklynella is known by excessive slime production, sloughing of the skin, loss of appetite, listlessness and rapid breathing. Not sure what the white lump might be, but it probably isn't Brooklynella.

Ok thanks, I was just worried, I read in the The Conscientious Marine Aquarist and it had drawings of round white lumps and said it was common to anemone fish(I"m assuming this means clownfish?) The fish is acting normal, and eats a ton of food. I'll try to post a pic if I can get him to stop dancing for a second

Looks like lymphocystis from here, but it's real hard to say for sure from that pic. If you can get a better pic...post it.
