    My Betta was in the care of a friend for the last 3 months so his recent history is unknown to me, other than he has always lived in a 2.5 gallon tank with 76-80 degree water (I use a heater that automatically kicks on if the water temp falls below 76 degrees), and a filter. My friend used all...

    I have just noticed 4 or 5 days ago that my betta fish has formed a rather large lump on it's left side. I figured that maybe it had caught on the filter at first but it would've gone away by now and wouldn't be that large. Is this a tumor or cyst? Or just swim bladder? I can't really find any...
