The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      Hello, my Cuvier's Bichir has this tumour growing for months, it was small for a long time but just a month ago, it increased dramaticly and al though I have been changing water regularly, thinking it may be a parasite it is not. The photos are taken after the change. It's tank mates are healthy and they are 4 silver dollars and a ornate bichir in a 200L tank with live plants.
      It was eating fine till yesterday and I am afraid that soon I might have to euthanize it.

      Welcome aboard

      Personally the first I've ever seen something like that on a poly. Please list your water parameters.

      Looks to be a tumor. From the photo looks like its growing from the inside toward the outside. I’d suggest euthanasia. Don’t think it’ll survive any surgery or intervention. Cost to a vet likely expensive and can be repalaces with another Senegalus. Sorry to say it in that manner. Best of luck.

      I've had similar tumors occur in a few goldfish and koi I've had over the yrs. That looks too deep to remove safely. It would be unkind to let him linger.:(
