  1. So about 2 months ago my chocolate Cichlid gets this weird white bump next to its eye. Pic below. I treat the tank with salt and water changes and the bump seems to disappear. Then she starts to seem almost as if she can’t see and blindly bites at food as it passes by. I treat with prazipro. It doesn’t help. next I see similar bumps on my big red Severum. I do research and start to treat with Metronidazole and prazipro together. I am not on day 4 of the combo treatment in two separate tanks. The Severum is clearing up and eating food medicated with metro and Kanaplex. The chocolate still won’t eat and though she has no external bumps, she is wasting away. Also my other chocolate and EBJD seem to be losing their appetite as well and they won’t eat the medicated food. I’m distraught. Though it seems the Severum is resolved or close to it… the others who won’t eat are not. Help! Pics of the fish effected are below. Later ones are after treatment on red Severum.

    For the last4-5 days my Gold Saum has had this protrusion sticking from her vent. At first I thought it was a prolapse as many speculated so I set up a hospital tank for her and moved her in. Epsom salts the on the way. ..... BUT as soon as I moved her, and before any Epsom salts were in the water, it (the protrusion) went back in. So ... then I thought ok maybe it’s an egg tube? Now it’s back out again. Really need some help here. Don’t wanna medicate if it’s just an egg tube but it looks much bigger than any egg tube I’ve seen in research. Also it is housed with a male gold Saum and I’d love to breed them but a Jack Dempsey in the tank is a mean bastard and won’t let them nest. I’m thinking he might have to be moved into the separate tank. Please help. The pics are in order from originally cause for alarm, then retraction after I moved her, then it’s back but smaller. What’s going on??? I’d love to breed these guys!
