    So there is an interesting bubble on the fin of my banana wrasse. The fish is well and has no apparent side effects. The Bubble has grown a bit but has been there for a few weeks. Any clues??

    Could it possibly be Lymphocystis?

    if Lymphocytis, it can take a while to heal eventually on its own, couple of weeks. If fish still happy and eating, then that is a good sign.
