I have a whole new respect for Ashes and her teeth. I thought my cat who chewed the corner off my wooden window sill was impressive. Ashes is in a class of her own.

Oh my God- would only a tumor cause raised scales in one part of a fish?

Tumor or a localized infection. If there's a bacterial infection just under the scales in a particular area of the fish, it can cause localized pineconing. Some parasites like skin flukes could also cause pineconing.

Treat externally, right?

Yes, you can put a 30gal heater in a 6 gal tub. In a pinch, I've used 50w heaters in 2 gal tanks. Can you get a pic of Gilbert? I might be able to tell if it's a tumor or infection.

For treatment, 3 tsps of epsom salt per gallon and Indian Almond Leaves or oak leaves if you have them. How is he acting otherwise? Is he eating and acting normally?

On a related note, my mom's fish Stumpy (she claimed him as hers) is pineconing. Still can't tell if it's camallanus worms or something else. His red ventrals get in the way.
