I just came back from a 5 week trip and noticed one has welts on its body. Its acting fine and eating normally. Just curious if anyone had run across this before. I've done a bit of research and can't seem to nail it down. The lady at the local fish store wasn't positive either but seemed sure it wasn't worms.

Hopefully not dropsy, also known as the "pinecone disease." It's a symptom of one of a number of diseases, but indicates organ failure. I'm not sure that's what it is, but could be. One red flag is that you've been gone for five weeks. Did you have someone else feeding your fish? In most cases when someone who isn't a fish person steps in to feed a tank during a vacation, they way overfeed. Not overfeeding takes practice.

Good luck with your fish.
