Hi, my male molly has a weird lump on its eye, it looks like a tumour, and other orage lump on his gills on the other side. Another one has a similar lump on its fin. They both seem happy and healthy otherwise but i worry what it might be? Please help.

After I did some more reading I realized that. The best thing I could find that looked similar to my yours is the Lymphocystis

Thank you. I have been reading about it, id does sound like Lymphocystis. No idea what to do now, I have a big batch of baby mollies in the same tank I was going to take to the pet shop together with my female but it looks like I can't do that. I only have a small tank and made a mistake sexing one of the mollies, hence the babies. I can only have about 4 fish in there, not 15...(((

Honestly I’m not too sure either what the next step should be, hopefully someone more knowledgeable than myself sees this and is able to help/point you in the right direction
