Author Topic: albino senegal bichir - weird lump on his side  (Read 1181 times)

Hi everyone,
I've had my Bichir for just over a year now. He has developed some sort of lump on his right side just after the fin. It's gotten progressively bigger over the last few months and is now the size of an M&M or so and becoming dark purple in color and veiny. He doesn't seem to care about it although, he can't fit into the spaces he used to due to the size.  I don't want to be a bad fish parent but i think going to the vet is not realistic? Any ideas?

Does this look like your fish's tumor?

When in doubt, do a water change.
