    Hi Guys

    My trigger fish seems perfectly happy. He's eating normaly, sleep sin his fav spot every night, plays with the clowns and tangs.

    Now i have noticed this white lump,on his left face fin, I have no idea what it is, at first i thought it was a bit of prawn stuck to him. But it since has got bigger.

    I have attached a photo, its not that clear, I try and take a better one tonight. Any ideas on what it could be.

    Also have a look at my youe tube video, when he comes out behind the rocks you can see the white lump.

    Hi Jon , cant get the video to work for me, so Im not sure
    try a google search for lymph nodes - or Lymphistitus - can be sure from the image alone but you might find some images that will help with positive or otherwise ID
