Re: Can anyone help us figure out what the protruding thing on his side is?

does the thing move around? Does it go away and come back?

when did you first notice it? has it changed since then?

Also, if its a parasite, you can freshautolinker.com autolinking image water dip the fish, that will kill it.

He just get this in the QT? Or has he run into some rocks and its in the process of healing up?
If you got him with this on him, I'd Hypo those fish, or FW dip them, that will kill it if its a parasite.

Our QT doesn't have rocks or any way he could have scratched him self. We freshautolinker.com autolinking image water dipped before putting them in the QT. I have been monitoring him and he is swimming a little odd as well.

Aight got ya.
We are looking at Lymphocystis.
Its not fatal to the fish, unless its still stressed out and your water quality is poor. Make sure your water #'s are in line and the fish will be alright.

I will do research on that thank you very much!!

We have been keeping up with our QT our #'s are good. Doing water changes every 3 days.

Do you think we should remove the 3 other fish we have to another QT we have setup to prevent contamination??

Contamination has already happened. No reason to remove them now.
