Turkana Jewel Cichlid has growth on stomach

Rainbowaddict

I have a pair of turkana jewel cichlids and they breed allot. I've gotten a ton of fry but I noticed the male has this growth on his underside. Any thoughts ?

Looks like a prolapsed anus.
The prolapse will sometimes heal on it's own. Some have had success using Epsom salt.

has anyone seen anything like this ? I just pulled it off my male turkana jewel cichlid.
It was near his back belly area and anus.
Any idea what it is ?
