    I just got my new fish - one I noticed has a little red bump behind the fin. Is it anything I should worry about?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that's not normal. Do you have any other pictures of it?

    It's really hard to get good photos of it; it moves a lot. I'll try to get more.

    I know that I have bettas in those plexiglass tanks that are impossible to photograph. Thanks for trying.
    Your first picture was good. I was trying to see position. Is that coming thru the scales or out of the gills?

    It's right where the fin attaches to the fish's body. I can try to draw it if you want, we may have better results.

    Bad drawing, but it shows the position from below.

    Do you guys think it could be a tumor, maybe? I'm just trying to figure out if it's a parasite or disease or just a 'looks' issue.

    I was trying to figure out if it was a worm sticking out. What does his waste look like? Is it normal?

    Waste looks fine. It looks like a human skin tag, almost, just red-ish black.

    Okay, just keep an eye on it. Good luck.

    Oh, let us know if it just falls off and leaves a small hole.
