Mystery bump ID, parasite or injury?

Recommended Posts

P1120194_zps00eae1bc.jpg

Mystery bump on side of redcap oranda . first noticed yesterday after last spawn session 3 days ago and thought it to be an injury from rough spawn play. but today it looks to be a small round white dot(growing ?) attached to, on or worse through scale and causing irritation to skin. there is also some slight sweeling at the wound site too , I think.. All other fish look fine .

I do not think that I ever seen exactly this from any parasite that have in past attacked my fish such as anchor worm or worse but there are many hundreds of kinds . Now wish to ID this in order to decide upon if needed the correct treatment and welcome comments and ideas from all members.

Michael, that looks like inflammation of the lateral line to me.

I agree with Alex. That definitely looks like a part of the lateral line is inflamed.
