If you look very closely, you can see it.

Ohh I see it now. I have no idea what it means, but there is definitely something there. I'm really sorry about that, I have had a sick fish before and it is tough not knowing what is going on.

I'll try to get a better picture if he allows. Does this seem like physical trauma? I'd guess it has to be since there isn't any information about any kind of diseases causing anything like it.

Maybe your friend was doing a water change or re arranging the tank decor and left him in. He could have been curious and gotten in the way. Or maybe at one point there was a flesh wound there and then it healed but left an indentation..

I don't really know though, but I hope he pulls through!

I highly doubt that's the case, she's always very careful and gentle.
Also, he's always sideways and seems to have trouble swimming straight.

Hmm, really not sure. Maybe a genetic defect?

He never had these problems before though! He was a perfectly happy and normal fish until recently. =/

I got another picture, you should be able to really see it in this one. =c

it looks almost like he had a tumor and it deflated. Poor boy, I'm not sure there's much to be done for him, though you'll want to talk to OldFishLady...

OldFishLady, if you have any ideas, I think all 3 of us would really appreciate your input! =)

Assuming it was a tumor, what would that mean for him?
