I woke up this morning and noticed that my white betta I got off aquabid a few weeks ago has finrot again! He was healing so nicely too.

Did a water change. Upped the heat and added salt to prevent further damage to the fin.

I just looked at him carefully again and now I see a white bubble in the middle of his tail. The bubble is about half the size of a sesame seed. I have never seen anything like this before with any of my bettas. I can't get a picture right now because he won't stop swimming around. I suspect it might be lympocystis, but I don't know much about it. How should I treat it if that is the diagnosis?

Any thoughts?

It appears to be a fluid filled cyst. I have seen this in bettas on a couple of occasions. It will go away on it own but unfortunately it can be a reccuring problem.
Is it something I am causing or is it genetic?
