    noticed a lump on the tail of one of my koi a few years ago, have
    treated with various over the counter medicines mainly anti bacterial
    and anti funcus one of which turned the water green for about two weeks,
    that actually shrunk the lump and i was hopefull of a cure only for it
    to regrow bigger and darker in colour. it does not seem bothered eats
    well and does not affect swimming although it's growth is slow compared
    to other fish, do have over 30 fish in pond no others have been
    any advice welcome thanks.

    probably lymphocystis. I got one like that, seems to be genetic susceptibility, hasnt
    spread to any of the others.

    Somewhere between zone 5 and 6 tucked along the shore of Lake Michigan
    on the council grounds of the Fox, Mascouten, Potawatomi, and Winnebago
