Lola has what appears to be half wart/half pimple on her head. Please look.

I have NO idea what this is. I couldn't get a really clear picture of it, unfortunately. We just got back from vacation and I haven't had the opportunity to clean the walls of the tank. Don't pay attention to any spots other than the large white one on her head. The other spots are on the tank wall. It almost appears wart-ish, she's got a smaller one on the other side and it's more like a pimple.

Lola has never really grown like my other BP's and her coloration's always been funky, too. She's got a good appetite and her poop looks normal. Looking at the picture, her body looks a little gaunt, but she doesn't appear that way to the naked eye.

Fed the tank frozen bloodworms soaked in garlic guard and vita-chem.

Anybody have any idea what this is? I've never seen it before. Thanks for any comments/opinions.

Hi Lynda, sorry your aqua baby is sick.

I've no experience with this at all, but did some Google picture surfing to see if I could offer up something. Could it be Head and Lateral Line Disease? The other pictures of BP's with it look just like the bump on yours.

Just wanted to toss that out there for you to research further.

Bumping to see if anyone else can offer suggestions/help.

Sorry, I know bumping is pretty much against the rules. :helpsmilie:
