The only issue it has currently is what I think is a bad case of lymphocystis on one of its pectoral fins. That seems to be getting worse instead of better which has me a bit concerned.

Just fatten him up with as many small feeding as you can during the day. Once you get some weight on him and his health back, the Lymph should pass. My last Regal came in with it on it's tail and then again it showed up on another fin right after getting out of QT. It took about a month to clear up and now I haven't seen any sign of it in over 4 months.

So what do you guys think? Lymph or something else. Pics are terrible but these are the two best out of about 50 I tried to take. It originally was only on the fin. Now it also has spread to the body where the fin touches. I added a cleaner wrasse today in hopes that it may pick off whatever it is.

I’d treat it with PraziPro ASAP...that’s how I saved a few fishes that had the same symptoms.

Still alive. Eats great but the lymph or whatever it is just keeps getting worse. Not sure what to try. Used prazi, metroplex, and kanamycin just to try something

Id stop all medication and just keep the water quality as good as possible. Keep feeding nori and soak food in angelixir. I also use hikari mega angel frozen food with good results.

I agree with roberthu526. If it is Lymph there is nothing we can do to cure it. My Regal also came in with it. It took about two months to drop off and now I haven't seen another outbreak in four months. I have heard that stresses will cause outbreaks. Offering good water conditions and quality foods and peaceful tank mates will help keep the Lymph cotton balls away. Good luck.

Lymphocystis will gradually get better. On my CBB it even erroded the lower jaw and shorten it. Offer a few month the CBB is completely normal, jaw and all. Good luck.

A bump up for Regals. Plus I picked up a Redsea regal from my LFS thanks to ERI for $100.

I got a regal and he's eating flakes and pellets from the get go. I guess it really depends on the fish you get sometimes. Fine are easier to get eating. Now hopefully it'll pair up with my yellow belly regal I have had in the tank a long time.

Yeah, mine from live aquaria avoided all the fresh products I bought and just ate pellets and mysis easily. Go figure. Anyone, after a month of QT and little lympho after transferred into the DT he' s been a little trooper getting along nicely for the last 4-5 months.
