    Hi,

    Welcome to Fishlore

    Looks to me like the fish has some sort of missing scale or tumor, are there any more pics available?

    Ok,

    Looks lt possibly could be a tumor or some sort of parasite, if I were you I'd get a second opinion either if someone else posts on this thread or from a fish store

    thanks for the advice i will do that today. when it first started last week i thought it was white cotton as it looked like a small cotton wool bud which has now turned into a lump
