None * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?: Cheeto (the 2.5 inch GF )has a small growth on abdomen. Has a white tip (looks like a pimple and red around the growth). I just noticed it last night. Seems to be growing from underneath his scale. The left side of his body seems to be a little bloated but I'm not sure if you can tell in the pics * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? He is bottom sitting on occasion but swims normal when he sees me coming close to the tank. He is eating well. My other goldies are fine. Hi all, well, unfortunately one of my dear goldies is sick I don't know what's wrong. I feel very bad and sad. I just hope it's nothing that can't be helped. I really appreciate all your help. PS: I have a 20 GAL tank if he needs to be QT'd. I just don't have any kind of medication nor salt on hand. But if need be, I will get what I need. Thanks again. http://i752.photobucket.com/albums/xx164/MK-12/IMG_0122_zpsd6de0b72.jpg http://i752.photobucket.com/albums/xx164/MK-12/IMG_0101_zpsc0dba190.jpg
