Ok here's my dilemma. For a few weeks now, I have noticed a spot on Gracie behind her gills/gill plate up towards the top of her body that looked like a scale was missing. Now it looks like the scale is trying to grow in. There are the beginnings of a scale, but it doesn't seem to be making any progress. Its more of a slight lump under the skin. Externally it looks flesh colored, and it almost doesn't look like scales are missing like a kind of hole in the skin where one would be. Its almost flush with the body, but no scales. Could a scale get ingrown, and cause a cyst or lump under the skin? The lump is barely noticeable. Seems to be bothering me more than it does the fish. Other than that she is acting normally.
