Don’t know what these bumps are

Recommended Posts

 Hello my stepson has an Oranda name is Dylan and he has these lumps on him it started about 6 months ago he was in a 10 gallon tank and nobody did any maintenance to it for a long time so one day I’m in my stepsons room and realize he don’t look too hot so did some research got him a twenty gallon tank and a aqua clear 30 and started doing water changes every other day adding stability, Prime ,Aquarium Salt and his bumps started looking fuzzy so I swabbed them with pimafix api and the fuzz went away since then he went from acting like he was going too goldfish heaven to happy and active but I still can’t get the bumps to go away one of which has no scales on it you can see them trying too grow over it but they stay at the base of the lump

Photos aren't super clear but it looks like a tumor to me. Fairly common. There's no treatment except removal of it surgically once it gets too big.

Doesn't look like anything infectious to me. Always quarantine new fish for 30 days before adding to the main tank. A second opinion will be along soon. Hang tight. Oh and can you please grab the fish and feel the protrusions and describe their texture?
