not sure if something is wrong...

you know, B swims around and there are bubbles everywhere. so he is happy, i clean his cage every other day and change the top water daily. [i have no filter] but there is this small bump on his face. just above his "flaring gill" not sure what to call it. and his face his a little blotchy. i have been trying to get a decent picture but none of them turn out, and he got angry and flared at me once for sticking a lens in his face. could you help me?

does anyone know what this might be?

Well blotches might idicate ich or another external parasite.
As for the bump, is it the same color as the fish, or a different color?

Blotches would not be ich, ich looks like salt crystals. It could be velvet or another external parasite though. Can you provide a picture?
