Thread: Swollen Lips

    Default Swollen Lips

    I just bought a new African Cichlid. But when I came home and looked at the fish (still in the plastic bag) , I noticed that the lips are swollen. Both upper and lower lips are very very big. I'm afraid that if I put it in my tank it'll contaminate the entire tank. What kind disease is this?

    What species? Many have big lips.
    The photocontest, like everything else is behind schedule. You get some links back today.

    Yep, P. milomo have big lips naturally for example. A picture would help.
