    We have a goldfish in our pond that seems to have these little bunches of egg shaped bumps on it's pectoral fins. Is the fish sick? Another thing I thought is maybe they are eggs?
    We also noticed some flicked off when taking these pictures.

    Here's a link to some pictures:

    Also it's on outdoor pond on the northwest side of the states,
    Approximate measurements are:

    3.5 feet deep

    18-20 feet long

    8-9 feet wide

    Stream/ waterfall for circulation/ re-circulation

    drain for overflow

    Goldfish measurements:

    9-10 in. from tip of nose to tip of tail

    Hi, welcome to fishlore :;hi2

    The lump on her pectoral fin looks like a cyst of some sort but the white areas in her tail seem bacterial perhaps. How are the other fish?

    How is her behavior? how is her eating?

    Have you tested your water parameters for ammonia and nitrites and nitrates in the last couple of days?

    You could start a thread under the disease part of the forum and will probably get more responses.
