    Can someone please help us?

    About a month ago we brought a pair of mis bar clown fish. About 4 days ago the male developed only what can be described as a burst spot on the side of his head.

    for the last 3 days we have treated the tank with eSHa OODINEX, which i a wide ranging marine treatment but there has been no change in the condition of the fish.

    He seams happy enough and is eating fine.

    Im posting up a couple of pictures of the growth/burst spot, they arent very clear as he is a little camera shy but you can get the general gist.

    We have trawled through countless pictures ect to try and identify what this is but have come across nothing similar.

    Please help.

    Thanks for the link, we had viewed this site, and on first glimpse it looked a little like Mycobacteriosis, however on more in-depth reading and viewing lots of images im really not sure!

    Really dont know what to do!
