Yesterday night i saw one of my zebra danio was having a cyst kind of thing near its tail. But it is very active and does not show any stress?? Is it a disease?? Can somebody please help?
Tank is 4feetX1.5 ftX 1ft with 200 wts heater at 28 degree celcius
Dolphin f1200 internal filter with active carbon removed and using sponge as filter media. Some driftwood and plants are there in the tank.
Does the cyst look like a pimple? If yes, then it is fairly common in fast moving fish and usually happens when the fish hurts itself. My recommendation would be to add a little salt and let the fish heal on its own. In most cases, it should not do any harm.
Thanks for your reply. Earlier it looked like a pimple and after a week or so it looked like a wound or cut in the skin. I did not know how to treat that fish so quarantined that. Other fishes are doing excellent.
