    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.

    I didn't know fish could get sick so quick.

    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.

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