Nope, I finally found my flashlight. I appears that he has some sort of skin tag hanging out.. I just tried to feed him and he tried really, really hard to get to the food the moment he saw it. I even sunk some for him, but he seems to not have any true sense of direction as to where his mouth is. His judgement is off... I think he got a tiny smidge though. I stopped and took the food out to let him rest from his effort. He was getting stressed out I'm sure. But I also don't want to just leave the food in there to cause stuff in the water.

How often should I try to let him eat?

could be scale problems hopefully this fixes itself try using api stress coat+ or something like that, very light dose to see how he progresses.
i would fast him, prolly for another day or two, food seems to be stressing him out because of the difficulty to eat
i wish i could be more helpful and give u and immediate remedy

It's alright. Having someone else suggest fasting him makes me feel better about it. And that's true... no need to cause undue stress... I will see if I have any stress coat.

Thats kinda why I make sure I keep posting... Hoping~ <3 All I can do is change his water every day, keep it lower for him to reach and make sure his water stays warm.

For now I suggest to keep a good eye on him. Warm water will help! A more up close picture of the bump may help. He can still move his mouth correct?

Is he having trouble swimming? If so I would lower the water level to 3 to 4 inches maybe less to make it easier for him to breathe. I would also had a tannin source (Indian Almond Leaves or Oak Leaves). Other than that, I do not know what else to do :( Hope he pulls through!
