"I have a blue cichlid. It has been with me for 5 yrs now. He is about 8" long and a couple inches wide. I have two plecostamas' (9"long) in same 80 gal. tank. W/in past 2 wks, my cichlid has a whitish lump on the nose area in between the eyes. Around the eyes are white rings that are getting puffy. My cichlid had this same lump a month ago and it went away after it/fish popped it. I have been reading about all kinds of diseases and I do not want to do the wrong type of treatment. The cichlid is now having the bottom of his belly turning white/grey. He doesn't look too good and it seems to be happening rapidly. I have changed the water and would like to have a suggestion of what to use to treat whatever this is. I have ich/parasite medicine which I used last month. This problem is just affecting the cichlid and not the plecostamas'. Please help."
