Browns1028

Hello
I have 3 goldfish and 2 Khoi in a 500 gallon outdoor pond
the pond is healthy and beautiful Fish are super active hungry and sweet but a couple of days ago I saw a white bump in my smallest goldfish Mo . see attached Other fish are fine ...
all of them eating well I can’t identify what that bump is . Is it ich or ick I don’t really see it on body of fish . I fed all the fish garlic for 3 days to boost their immunity .
they eat flakes pellets and treats like fruits and veggies .

can anyone help ?

thank you in advance

i don't believe its ich.

hard to tell from the pictures, could be a cyst, some kind of growth, or scratched piece of tissue.

Thank you I don’t think it’s ich either Mouth rot? Worm ?

will keep an eye on it ... is there any preventative non chemical things I can give my boys and girl ?

hydrogen peroxide swab in the mouth ?

all the fish LOVE ❤️ garlic

garlic is fine.

H2O2 should be ok.

if you could net him, and get a close up pic, someone might be able to diagnose it.

That doesn't look like anything you should worry about, probably just a small injury. Keep the water clean (i.e. do your water changes) and continue feeding them pro immune foods like garlic and vitamin c (they LOVE oranges!) He'll be fine :)
