So here's the thing, I've had this little guy for about almost 2 months now but out of no where he got this big lump on his neck and I'm scared, I just wanted to get people's thoughts on it and what to do, also he has a white string coming from his gills and I think it's just skin but I doubt it

Flint town!
Wow that's weird. I had a sen that had a tumor but it didn't look like that or pop up over night. I'd try something like prazi to fight a parasite. But maybe others will chime in.

I personally never seen anything like that before. It looks like it swallowed something too large but I'm not sure.
I thought so to, I had him with gravel but I pressed a bit on it and it's squishy, he was in a tank with guppies, I changed tanks with him a few times to get him comfortable, but nothing worked and it doesn't seem to be getting any worse so I don't know

Seen it before on cb polys. Turns out to be a defect. I’d leave alone as it’s acting and eating normal.

If it has no problem getting to the surface and breathing just wait it out. Keep us updated.
