By breathing fin do you man gill?

What does the growth look like? A tumour? Cotton wool? Something else?

What are your water parameters? Are there any other fish in the tank?

We'll need a bit more info before we can help I'm afraid.

If you have a photo that would be the most helpful thing for us.
