    I have recently noticed that my angelfish has two strange white tubular like structures protruding from its face, the longest just above its eye. It refuses to eat and I have noticed an odd spasm. I cannot find anything on the web that looks like it apart from white spot. Does anyone know what this can be and secondly any recommendations for medication.

    Would appreciate any help as I have had this angelfish for a long time and would be sad to lose it!!!

    Thanks,

    Dinos
