Iíve just got back home from being away on business for 2 month's, i've had my girlfriend looking after my planted tank and obviously something has gone very very wrong.
She called me about a week ago to tell me that a white pimple has appeared on my angelfish, the pimple protrudes from the fish by about 2mm and there is no redness or soreness around the pimple, its defiantly not ich as i keep my tank at 86F and all my fish have been acclimatising to this temperature over a 8 month period and thus far have been fine.
I'm about to remove my angelfish from my planted tank into a quarantine tank iíve just set up but iíve no idea what to treat it with because i donít know what the problem is in the first place.
No other fish in the tank have shown any kind of illness / spots / growths on there body.
This is a picture of said angelfish Imageshack - spotgk
The growth / spot is about 2mm round and sticks out about 2mm, the end of it does look sort of "fuzzy"
I've really no idea if this is a fungal or bacterial infection and would really like someone to point me in the right direction so i can hopefully medicate this fish.
