I posted about this little guy (?) a while back when we thought it might be lymphocystis. I kept the water clean with the expectation that the growth would pop within a week, but as of recently it's just gotten a bit bigger and seems to be tearing or flaking a bit on one side. Any suggestions? I've never seen anything like this before, and it doesn't seem to be bothering him, so I don't really know what to do about it.
