Was watching the tank and I just noticed a growth on my male gts fin. Idk what it is and never had a fish with this issue it doesn’t seem to be bothering him at all. I’m wondering if I should be worried or it will probably go away on its own. Him and his female are in breeding mode and he’s gotten in a few scuffles so it could be a little injury.

Tanks due for a water change Wednesday so the nitrates will get down
