What do you make of this giant "pom pom"?

Recommended Posts

This thing keeps getting bigger and bigger. Opinions?

I would almost think it was a tumor. Have you felt it? If so is it soft or hard??

Definitely a tumor. Looks easy enough to remove. Can't be comfortable in that spot and if it's growing quickly, it'll probably get even more uncomfortable. His scales have been scraped off a lot as well. Maybe those decorations in the tank?

Yeah probably. It's a very dopey fish. I suppose I could remove them but my bristlenose plecos each claimed one. Good observation thank you.

So I realized I am a bad man because I didn't fill out the diagnosis checklist! Sorry!

Ok I chopped off the tumor. It was soft. Guess time will tell if it grows back. I also grabbed one of the large ornaments to remove it and noticed all the orange scales were inside it. I assume the fish was stuck inside at some point. I cut the ornament in such a way that it is shorter and nearly impossible for a goldfish to get stuck in. I'll probably do the same to the other one too. Doesn't look great but better than nothing and more safe.

I loved when I had them in my fish tank. But I lived in Ca when I could have them :)
