    Hi all, not sure if this the right place to start the thread, Mods pls move if need be.

    Ok, so my lieutenant has these bumps around his body, can anybody advise as to what this could be? I thought about White Spot but these are quite big "pimples" compared to the WS that I've come across

    I must say that he otherwise seems very healthy, fat as you can see from the pic's and still eating like a mo'fo..
    All other tangs and other species showing no signs of WS and no recent additions, last new fish that I introduced was the CBB about 3-4months back
