as far as the treatment for bacteria cysts go, there aren't any. pristine water is what is needed and once it/they pop, it's usual that we keep the site clean by adding either aquarium salt at 0.1% or melafix. the fish will usually heal itself, but sometimes the wound can be left raw and bleeding a little, depending on the size of the cyst.

Helen If I may suggest the Silver treatment... It works on bacterial stuff and wounds.....

 

We can do salt in the tank and silver right into the tank... :)
