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.  :wacko: Thank you for looking. IMG_0834_zps0cb2142b.jpg

It's hard to see clearly in the pics, but it could be viral.  If so, this is usually harmless and doesn't require treatment.  What temperature is your tank at?

Sorry, those were the best i could do. The bumps aren't fuzzy looking they are defined and looked like they would be kind of hard like a cyst or pimple. The tank is at 70 F.

That sounds like it's papillomatous which is harmeless.   If you have a heater, you can try gradually raising the temperature a little each day until you are at 78 F.  This may help :)

Ok! Good to know I was just a little concerned because one day he had just one and the next there were two! I will try the heater method thanks for the tip!

I have a Ranchu who has had this for years and is very healthy.  It's really just a cosmetic issue.  The heat may or may not help, but is the recommended treatment.
