i used prazi pro like 2 months ago when i noticed a bump on my female clownfish on the left side of her face and it went away, now it looks to be back. my male clownfish hasn’t had any bumps. they are both eating fine and are doing their normal any insight as to what this could be?

Looks like a small cyst and can evolve from injury, fighting with another fish or infection.
Is fish eating and breathing normal?
Did this just develop or fish has had it a while now?

eating and breathing are normal, i noticed it tuesday, i don’t think it’s gotten any bigger or changed.

Thats what I was hoping to hear. keep an eye on it for improvement. IF infection, you can add Ruby rally pro as a safeguard

+1, looks like a cyst from an injury to me, clownfish often lip lock one another. I would just observe for now.
When you used Prazipro, did you dose it twice, about 8 days apart?

i only did one dose and noticed that the bump went away after about 3 days but it’s sounding like it just lined up and was lucky?

Prazipro really needs to be dosed twice, 8 days apart. It doesn't kill the fluke's eggs, and you need to time things and try to kill the hatching flukes, before they have grown old enough to lay their own egg.s that said, this bump on the chin is not a fluke.
