Have you tested your water?
Yes
If I did not test my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be asked to do a test, and that water tests are critical for solving freshwater health problems.
Do you do water changes?
Yes
If I do not change my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be recommended to do a water change, and water changes are critical for preventing future freshwater health problems.
Hi Everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me identify what is going on with my Vieja. The fish eats very well and still very active, i just noticed it during a feeding. Thank you in advance!IMG_3102.jpg

Hard to tell. Could be lymphocystis or a tumor. Would watch since it’s doing well.
