    Default fish question

    I have a maroon clown that has a very odd growth or something on his bottom side. I called the guys at trop and they told me to give him a fresh water dip for 5 min. I have also posted a picture of what it looks like She is upside down. any idea should I be worried? she's not eating for the past 3 days.

    Need to see a picture? I cant see the link. You could also try some tea tree oil if it is an open wound. Apply it with a cue tip. it's works amazing at killing infection and speeding healing.

    here is a pic. finally got it to work. Another form I was told to use came up with this Lymphocytosis. everything I've read seems to point to this. Now I'm just having problems getting her to eat. Any thoughts.

    Hmmmm that looks to be his anus. I would try the tea tree oil. It may be a cancer or tumor in which case I am afraid he is not long for this world. Is it under the skin?

    The weird thing is I noticed it about a week ago and it was very small. A few days went by and it seemed to go away. Then a few days ago it came back but much larger. I don't think it's under the skin. Sorry for the bad picture was the best I could do when I gave her a fresh water dip.
