ID on disease? (Tumor?)

Recommended Posts

So I just got home from my fiancé’s graduation and found that my starry blenny, Scarlet, has acquired a face injury of some sort. Looks like a tumor to me, but open to discussion about what it is/ possible treatment options. 

 

The good news is that she is still a piggy and very active. I see no weight loss on her or scratching, just a mysterious growth.

If she's still eating, I wouldn't consider quarantining unless it turns red (infection).

 

Thanks for the response! It turned a little red, but after a couple more days of big eating and some love from the fire shrimp, it seems to have gone down quite a bit. So glad she’s safe 🙂

Here to update again that Scarlet is completely healed now - you can barely see a scar from where the tumor/lympho popped out.  I didn't do anything to treat it, so if something like this happens, just give it some time to go away and keep your water clean.
