I'm not really looking for any advice, except this..
My boy Reuben has a lump between his eye and gill. I just noticed it. It's elevated, but not by much yet. It's slightly lighter than the surrounding flesh, and is more like a badly drawn circle than a perfect one. It's asymmetrical to his other side. It can't be anything but a tumor?
So... Just got really sick to the stomach, imagining the worse. So far he's acting fine. I really hope it's benign... I've given the cancer talk (for fish) on this forum a few times, but of course I never thought it'd happen to me... It hurts since he's the first fish I've truly healed after being sick at the shop.
Not going to do any special treatment, it's really not worth it if you ask me. It won't stop it if it's cancerous, we don't even have anything to slow it, it'll only prolong the suffering.
I'll update as to whether or not it's growing any.
