Hi I just saw this jutting out the side of my Bangaii Cardinalfish fish. Any ideas?

Yup thought it was and am trying to identify which type so I can treat it effectively, wasn’t there yesterday and I haven’t purchased any new fish in 6 months.

Well whatever it was has gone! Whether it’s a coincidence or not that I started using this as soon as I saw it, the  Bangaii looks completely healthy, not even any wound. Puzzled but pleased.

Looked like a skin Fluke to me, good job on finding the treatment for it

Is that a parasitic worm or did I have that wrong?

Did the whole tank as it’s just herbal. Not sure anything works that fast so guess it’s just coincidental that it disappeared without a trace.
