I am so sorry to hear about Albatross. I hope he makes it.
I have no idea what that could be. I would say just try to make sure he does not get and infection or fungus while he recovers.
Maybe it is a internal tumor that is finally more visable or some injury inside his mouth?

I don't think it's a tumour. It started out as a gash-type thing across his face, but now his face is just looking like it has very little mouth left.

I'll try to take a picture tomorrow, if he lets me.

That is really weird, I cannot think of anything it may be off the top of my head. Hopefully you can get a picture.

Yikes, Could it be that he somehow wounded himself on the hard plastic parts of your silk plants? I see that some of them look like the ones from craft stores, not the ones made specifically for aquarium use... Unless a tank is 100% bare, no tank is truly 100% safe. He could have smashed into something...

I just came home and found him dead.


Alex, I guess it's a possibility. The second picture does have some plants from the dollar store, but the tank that he was in when I found his face like that was different, and all the plants in that tank were from pet stores.

Your story made me feel very sad. I am so sorry for his loss. At least he didn't suffer for very long.
