Tank: 60 gallons Fish: 3 medium/large, 1 small Ammonia: 0 Nitrates: 0 Nitrites: 0 Weekly water changes 25% Last water change 2 days ago Hi Guys, my black oranda that I have had for nearly two years has these little weird white bumps on his lower lip. He has had these for a while and I have treated him with Melafix a few months ago as he had some fungus on his tail. This did not affect the bumps at all. He has recently developed another one. He has had no problems swimming or anything and acts completely fine. I have tested my water and everything appears to be fine I do not know what to do. Thank you for looking.

I will try shortly I have noticed that my Ryukin goldfish seem to have paracitic worms that come partly out of their mouth when they flex their mouth when and shortly after eating. No other signs of sickness have persinted their self except the red ryunkin started sitting on the bottom some after seeming to fight with the parasites in its mouth for a little while. Now seems to be back to normal in behavior though. What might these parasites be and how do i fix the problem? Thank you all for whatever help you can give.
