Just throwing out an idea. I don't know anything about lymphocystis,
but I've heard of disease problems caused by contaminated feeds. My
current treatment for "white spot diseases" is to run a Magnum
canister filter with a micron cartridge and do frequent water
changes. Seems to work fairly well. Always loose some fish, though.
It's typically caused by new, stressed fish coming in and getting
sick. Doesn't sound like that's what you have... unless you can
identify some recent stressor -- high temps, water quality, poor
nutrition, change in water supply, new, stessed fish in the tanks...
