Hey guys, my Pleco is showing signs of an illness I’m not sure of. i’ve had him/her for a little over a year now, they are in a 10gallon tank by them selves as my betta fish died after I allowed a friend to care for them for me whilst I was at University.

After a few months I’ve started to see these lumps on my fish, I’ve checked the water quality and everything is normal, I did a water change the second I noticed it, but I don’t know what it is so i have no idea how to treat it.

He has 4 lumps altogether I want treat them before he gets more and gets worse, the largest is on his nose, he has two on one side and one on the other.

Please help.

Looks like a clear blister. Seen a few fish with these before that didnt respond to meds. Would watch and keep the water clean. I’d suggest a salt dip 4tsp per g in a bucket.
