I have had an interesting case with one of my silver dollars, approximately nine years old. A little after Christmas I noticed one of them had a lump on its side. This lump has been changing in shape and size the last month and a half. Today it almost has a little dimple in it. I was thinking it had a tumor and I expected it to get larger and larger until it eventually killed the fish. But as I said, the lump continues to change it shape and size. Has anyone ever seen this before? This fish does hide behind the plants all day, unfortunately, but always comes out to eat. It is not pecked at or harassed. I don’t know what to make of it. Has anyone ever experienced a case like this, even on a different species of fish?
The photo collage is numbered. So the first notice of the lump is picture one and so forth. This is over a span of a month and a half I would say.
