    There are uncountable of cases alike. It doesn't seem to be treatable which points me towards a viral disease (like lymphocystis).

    Is it contagious or fatal?

    Don't know for sure. Experiences show there are always some in a shoal that have them and some don't. It doesn't seem ot be lethal though if they'll start having difficulty to eat there is a problem.
