tank is 1 gallon. No filter. Lives alone. Eats pellets one in the morning and two or three in the evening. Change water every few day. Put the water stuff in when changing water. Never seemed ill before a few days ago thought mouth area looked bigger and darker. Then see that looks like inside comes out when hes trying to eat. Some times hangs out a little. Dont know how to treat so thats why I came here. Had him about 6 months now probably 2 years old.

Hmm sounds like he might have parasites. I'd get him on some aquarium salt and use parasite medication.
