Update: On Angelfish

I posted on yesterday about my angelfish having a cyst on the nose or something like that. Well today i looked in my QT tank and the white growth thing is gone. My angelfish just has a little red mark now where it was. The Melafix and Pimafix together must have worked. I will keep using the medicine for the 7 days til it is all gone. I turned up the water temp to 82 also. I'm so glad that it is getting better and not a tumor. It is my only angelfish in my 55 gal. community tank and is very friendly to all the fish in my tank unlike some angelfish. Here are some pictures i took of it today in the QT tank.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
