Well I finally got a pic of Alexander's really weird lump that doesn't seem to be going away..=/ The pics will probably be really blurry but you should be able to see the lump it has the green arrow pointing at it...Do you guys have any idea what it could be??

He's been acting mostly normal...He has been eating good the only thing that has changed a little bit is he has become slightly not as active but still moveing around alot. I will try to draw it and try to get clearer pics.
Here are some more pics of it...I'm not sure if you will be able to see them better....I'm really worried about him =/ Do you have any idea what it could be?? He's had it for awhile now but I thought it would go away but so far it hasn't...

Is it smooth? Is it bumpy? Is it under his scales or on top? What shape is it? Whiskey has a growth that he's had since May. I'm wondering if it's similar.

It a bump but it does look smooth. It looks like it's under his scales..It's really weird because none of the scales seem to be uprooted..they are all smooth and it's in a circular shape.

Maybe he banged himself? It may be a deformity (which is what I was told Whiskey's is) Whiskey's is kind of pebbly looking and it changes color when he does. It was dark blue when he was going that color. Now it's turning white as he does. Here's a pic for comparison.



He's had it so long now I can't really remember how it started. I think it was just a rounded bump.

I hope someone else has some ideas. :(

That looks kind of like Alex's except his is bigger and much more of a bump ...It also has some scratches but they cleared up a few weeks ago...The one thing I'm worried about is it being a tumor...Does anyone know what those would look like on a betta fish??? Do you think that could be a possibility??
