    Yeah, that's lymphocystis.

    You could drip some selcon into the blackworms before feeding, but I couldn't say whether they'll eat it and gutload, or die from it . . .

    Definitely lympho. I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point. Keep up with the black worms and selcon.

    I'd like to thank you and @Humblefish for your help. After going through the entire medication process, the Swallowtail cleared up very nicely. Her fins healed up and she's eating like a pig. Her quarantine period was finished yesterday and she was added to the display tank this afternoon. Unfortunately, the wrasse didn't last long enough to benefit from the treatment. He went downhill very quickly. Thanks again for your help.

    I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm glad the angel did well for you.

    Can it grow on an eye? I have a flame angel and it looks like that it's day 2 from noticing it. And it's getting bigger or can it be something else? ?

    Lympho can grow over almost any part of the body, even internal organs. :eek:
