Lateral Line Swelling on Powder Blue Tang

I have a Powder Blue Tang that has "puffiness" along one of its lateral lines. Chemistry is spot on, housed in a 180g FO tank and fed pellet, Nori, and a variety of frozen. Has anyone seen this before?

Take a picture. This might be lateral line disease.

Yeah but HLLE has the opposite affect and usually always starts as small pinholes and faded discoloration of the line .Usually very easy to identify it.
I'm curious to see what this looks like sean

Light is off right now. I will try to get one tomorrow. Convincing it to hold still has proven to be a challenge.

Isn't HLLE disease diet related? I thought I was feeding a really diverse diet. If that is what it is, can it be reversed?

I agree HLLE is erosion, not swelling. Maybe the beginnings of Dropsy?

Doesn't look like dropsy. Looks like the puffiness you get along a scratch on your arm or something. I am going to try and get a picture today.

No pictures. Went to take one and the "swelling" is gone. I must be losing my mind.
