A few weeks ago I saw something on my fishy's side that looked like a few scales were raised...I didn't know what to do so I just kind of left it because he was swimming around just fine and eating happily. The area now looks something akin to a medium-sized tumor on his side...it's like a big white clump. He's still eating fine, swimming fine, no signs of lethargy or sickness at all.
