  • My tiger fish did that he ended up dying. Mold started growing out his eyes.

  • I had a tetra that had a growth on its eye. Looked like a tumor, and it only lived for a few more weeks. Sorry!! :(

  • is it just a bump? i had a fish that had a bump and he lasted forever. he was also my fav fish he come to top of the tank and let me pet him (swear to that one ) and it was easy to point him out. so its a 50 50 thing could be nothing just a growth or something else. when it comes to fish its a wait and see kinda thing. but hope your fish is ok :)

  • My husband noticed it(his pets). I do remember one side its body was inflamed. The moldy part happen within hours. Hubby fed them that morning and by that afternoon we noticed the mold. A couple seconds later it died.

  • change the water & feed it some frozen pea's...he might be constipated. Weird i know, but they get constipated a lot & it can make them sick. The pea's will help him poop.
