    Hmm... some kind of internal growth or tumor? Is it acting strange at all?
    Isn't that the wild-caught one that we were trying to help you breed a while back?

    No doesn't seem to be acting strange she still eating still active maybe just a little more nippy then usual .....not it's not that female I've put her in another tank for now to condition her and try again but it is another wild caught comes from the same batch as my other wild caught 1 it's the female my friend got when I got mine

    I've also been reading that they can get ulcers from spawning? I'm not sure if thats true but the 1 female and male had a sparring match the other day and then she laid eggs

    I have never heard of this before. Can you provide a source?

    Well when you look up causes of ulcers in aquariums on Google it says they can get it from spawning when they flashing and rub up against a rock or tank decor lose a scale and so the ulcer starts ?
