Hi Koko's! It has been forever since I've been on. I've returned in my hour of need!
I have three large Oranda goldfish and this morning I noticed a large growth on Garrus's chin! I've never seen anything like it and I'm pretty worried! He also looks like he has a large raised scale on one of his sides, but just one. My quarantine tank was broken in a recent move so I have transferred him to a clean 30gallon tub with an air stone. I went to change the water in my 55gallon after I took Garrus out and while siphoning I noticed that I siphoned up a scale. Can anybody help?? I'm not sure what to do
