The growth started very small the size of a pencil point, I purchased the fish august 10 noticed something in late sept. It has been very slow growing but is prodominent in size now. The growth is blue the same color as my fish, he wasn't behaving differently I thought it was a tumor and there was nohing I could do but keep him happy.
Over the last month his color is starting to fade, he had such a brilliant color when I had him for the first few months. He is still eating but he just sits at the top of the tank looking at the lights. It seems like the growth is weighing him down sometimes causing him to lean to the side. He still a very happy boy. I think that some of his scales are coming off not 100% sure about that. Well in the last few weeks I have noticed the growth to have white growing out of it not in specs but as if the skin is stretched to the max. I need help I can send pictures to anyone that needs to take a look. I tried ich meds to rule that out. I have him in a 2 gallon tank. Please help me save my fish. I love him and can't stand to watch him suffer without doing anything.
