Help! Envy has some growth.

I am seriously worried about Envy my male veil tail. Hes has a growth around the pectoral fin for a few weeks now. Originally I thought it would clear away but it hasn't, only got bigger.
Today I went to check it out and suddenly the whole pectoral fin has gone except a few strands. The growth is sill there.

The ammonia and nitrate is 0. He lives in a 15L with two otocinclus. Its planted with live plants. The water is PH around 7 and the hardness is a little hard.

Please can someone help him!

Is the growth fuzzy? If so it may be a fungus but I dont think fungus eats away fins. Columnaris would but normally that is a quick killer. However there is a slower moving strand of it.

I would think tumor that cut the blood supply to the pectoral fin.

Yer, I am unsure now as the fin is back. I don't know how i didn't spot it. Envy just doesn't seem to be using that fin.

Looking at it again it seems like something growing under the scales that has split them open and come out. Its not fuzzy.
