    Not sure what this is, but 3+ year old Glofish danio has growth on stomach area. I tried to take pics, but fish is very fast, eating/behaving normally. It doesn't look like a fungus or infection to me. Hoping someone can help with the ID. A/Ni=0, Na=15-20, pH=6.4-6.5. 72-73 degrees 5 gallon planted/filtered tank.

    I wish I could see the pics better but I know first hand how hard that can be! That being said, could it be a tumor? Did you do a water test and if so, what are your results?

    Just did a water change last night, gush is acting/eating normally/no distress. I can try to get a better pic, but will be difficult. The bump looks solid. I don't think it's swim bladder or impaction because of all normal behavior/no swimming difficulty. I'm afraid it is a tumor. Any ideas/help?

    your water parameters seem fine so I doubt it is water quality. Without a better pic I am really only guessing :( sorry. I found this site about tumors but again, I can't be sure that your fish suffers from a tumor.
