Hi All! So my goldfish has developed a huge bump on his left side, one day it wasnt there the next it was. maybe it happened in a course of a couple days but it really was sudden, now its protruding out to the point where it looks like his scales are coming off and it looks a little cotton-ish too. it doesnt seem to hurt him he is still acting his normal self. I figured it was a tumor and that hes going to probably die soon and just gave up and didnt even bother trying to figure it out and let nature take its course. (I had a goldfish that died months ago and I had him for 5 years, I was really sad when he passed because that goldy and I went through hell and back trying to keep him alive when he would get sick, which happened alot when I first got him but we always made it through, i spent alot of $$ on things to give him a good healthy life, so after he died I kind of gave up and said I wouldnt do that anymore bc i got really attached and was really sad) So since Ive hhad a goldy pass, I figured it was time for this one to go and I was going to let everything run its course but the animal lover inside of me is telling me to try and keep him alive if I can and o anything possible so IM here once again after a couple years asking what can do to this fishy to help him, if its not too late. I will leave info that I have below and a video of him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u96Tdd7kge8 ammonia: i naturally have ammonia but I use PRIME so it wont hurt him. usuall stuck between .25 and .50 last water change was last week I always do 50% (my pipes are frozen at the moment so i cant possibly do another right now) nitrite 0ppm nitrate 10ppm ph is normal too i havent used salt i havent used any medication hes on a 10 gal tank, i used to have him in a 27 gal but because of all the water changes i couldnt keep him in it anymore it was costing me alot of $$ on my water bill his stomach is a bit bloated im assuming cuz of the food i give him they aretetrafin goldfish crisp, i try feeding him peas once in a while to help with any bladder issues his eyes are a bit bulged out too, again i think this was from before when i couldnt do many chages in water so the lack of water changes may have affected him before i dont know the brand of tank or filter i dont have the boxes anymore and i dont change filter i just rinse it with his tank water i also have airstones, two of them in his tank if anyone could help i would really appreciate it THANKS!
