Yeah, I'm hoping it's going to fall off someday soon. :( Here's what it looks like now:

Hold on, and I'll post what Vulcan's looks like.... it's definitely not pretty.

This was him back in January:



This is him now (bad pictures, Vulcan is very hard to photograph) :



Once again, I SINCERELY hope your boy doesn't have this. It's disgusting, and extremely hard to get rid of (or it is for me). I was going to euthanize him, but I don't have the heart. So, I'm going to wait for him to go on his own. Like I said, it doesn't seem to bother him at all.

I finally found the picture of when he was first getting it... looks like your guy's. Like I said, he's horribly hard to photograph, so you can only somewhat see it here.... It's the bright, bright white spot on him

Aw geez. Poor guy. I hope it doesn't turn out like that. When it started, was it all bubbly looking? Or was it just a flat white patch? Poor Vulcan. I'm sorry. :(

one of my bettas had that before and I have one with it now I would say that it is some sort of tumor but may or may not be cancerous. I know my first fish that had one passed away because theirs got so big. But the fish I have now that has one seems fine. Hard to say what could have caused the buildup unless you had a vet or fish specialists test the tissue.

When it first started, it was just a little bit of white.... then it slowly got bigger. It was kind of bumpy, yet smooth. It's hard to explain. Not rough. Definitely not rough. Gah. I'm so bad at explaining.

No, I think I understand. I'll just have to wait it out. It sounds the same as Whiskey's. I read with Lymphcystis, that they fall off eventually. So there's really nothing to be done in either case but wait and see which way it goes. Thanks for the input though Code, at least I know if it gets like that he'll deal with it okay, no matter how much it gives me the willies.

No problem (: Yeah, doesn't seem to bother him at all. He jumps out at the hand that feeds him just like the rest, follows fingers like a pro, and eats, sleeps, and swims just fine.

I really hope it's what you think it is. Good luck!

Eeekk! Poor boys. They are both so gorgeous... it is too bad they have growths. Glad to hear it doesn't seem to bother them though.

I WAS THINKING IT WAS possibly a bacterial infection or parasites that keep multiplying and building up in 1 spot?
