    My gourami has a lump...

    I woke up this morning to find that my blue dwarf gourami has a lump on its side.

    I am almost certain that it popped up over night...I was just trying to get pics of him the day before.





    What is it? Can it be fixed? Also I don't have a quarantine tank yet either...

    Not good! Looks like it's about to open up into a lesion. I would definitely medicate that fish immediately. A sulfa- based product like API Triple Sulfa would be my first choice, second would be something furan-based.

    Well it could have been something festering for a while. Always possible that his body has been fighting it for a while and just can't fight it anymore or it got worse.

    3 10g, 2 snail and grow out, 1 Indian dwarf puffer tank
    2.5g gimme ideas!
    2 55g, 1 angels based community, 1 livebearer community
    125g soon to be FOWLR then reef (pm me if you have small saltwater equipment like a refractometer to sell)

    Good news, the meds are working! It is half the size. Sorry for bad pics, water is cloudy from meds.
