Hi fishlore, meet Golem. Golem *was* a success story, now, months later I worried. So Golem came home with half a tail, a bent spine, one fin, and discoloration. I helped him out, he does well now. Well, not anymore. This likely has nothing to do with his precious stuff, that is VERY old news, and he recovered. Well, now Golem has "issues". I recently noticed he was hiding. When he came out, I went, "whoa". He has weird lumps on his body, defiantly not whitespot. It looks like he grew huge tumors overnight. I did an immediate water change, took a picture when he came out of hiding, sorry the water is cloudy. Oh, and by the way, he's a cardinal tetra. Wee little thing. The picture is horrible, you can hardly tell. I don't expect Golem to make it a this point, not eating and everything, but I really want to diagnose it and prevent more outbreaks. P.S. I have encountered NTD before(a very woeful tale), but this seems different. And the spine thing is not from NTD but a birth defect.
