Black Bump?

Recommended Posts

Guuyyyssss. D:

Just today I noticed my smaller girl Soxxy has a black bump protruding off her already black eye. It's hard to see, but you can definitely tell when she looks at you. I can't get a good picture!!!! I will try again tomorrow. Someone please try to zoom in and see what I'm talking about. :doh11:

I don't know what is going on!

I will fill out the forum tomorrow, I honestly didn't do a water test tonight from such a crappy day (I know), I will do it tomorrow and post the forum but I'd love for you guys to check her out and see what you think it could be? I'm really hoping not a tumor...

(the silver flecks are normal, she's always had them it's a black bump)

Ugh, I hope you can even see...

Testing the water right now - I actually dont have a heater, the black thing is the filter and the blue thing suctioned on the wall is the airstone, it just slid up a little. haha

Water tests posted above. Seemed pretty good - what do I do if it was an injury? :doh11:

P.s. he is a little blind seeming so I wouldn't be surprised!!!

I would keep an eye out on it. The other thing we could do is put him in a QT with a Epsom salt for a few days to see if it will go down :)
