This is my first time posting on this forum so please have patience with me. Thanks!! So im posting for my friend about her goldfish. It has a weird brain looking tumor on its head its had this for almost its whole life. Recently it started turning green and black and the scales are falling off all over its body. It has been acting normally. It has a torn fin on the top. I will get back once i get water parameters and info about the fish and tank. Please tell me your thoughts on it.


This was it a couple weeks ago

It’s not necessary to clean the entire tank. Just clean water is needed.

If it is lymphocystic, just know that it's viral and contagious. You should keep thefish isolated for at least a month AFTER the symptoms disappear. I'm not sure what size aquarium that is, but a common goldfish needs about 75 gallons by itself.
