Pimple on my Ryukin


Recommended Posts

Came home from work and I notice that my ryukin has a perfectly round pimple on his head that wasn't there 10 hours earlier. If it was my ranchu I'd say wen growth, but this is weird. Any ideas out there? [emoji47]

It could be a lot of things. If i weren't replying my iPhone, I'd paste the form, but you will be asked for a full list of your water parameters: ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, GH, KH, and temp come to mind, but there are definitely other questions. There's a full list in one of the sticky posts.

The results will help the moderators figure out what it could be, so don't fudge anything, as wrong data can lead to wrong treatment.

Good lookin' fish, though. I hope he gets better soon!

Looks like a bacterial cyst and probably nothing serious.  If you notice more or this one gets worse, let us know.  If you want to fill out the form, the link is below my signature.  We can tell you if we see any problems that may be causing this.
