Is this fungus on my Cory?

Okay so this morning I check o my fishies as usual to see if they are okay and I notice this fungal looking growth thing on one of my cories. I know the other day one of my cories was losing color and then came back after I did a simple water change and now I'm seeing this. I mean he's eating good, and lately very active and schools with my other three. He's eating now as if it' not bothering him one bit. Can you anyone help. He's living in my 10 gallon with 3 other cories. I have a spare tank to separate him in case its that.

It doesn't look like fungus to me - fungus is usually fluffy. That looks like a tumor to me. Possibly lymphocystis.

Not that I have read - it's a virus. Supposedly it can go into remission if the fish is kept stress free.

It doesn't look like fungus to me, is it fuzzy or does it look smooth? The picture you took makes it look like a growth or tumor, in which case it wouldn't respond to a fungus medicine. Lots of water changes will only help since clean water does wonders for fish health, if you don't stress him out in the process (temperature shock, etc).

If its a tumor then there's nothing you can do about it.
