Please help - what's wrong with my fish
Please can some one give me some advice. Have come back from hols and my fish has this lump on his face. All the other fish seem fine.

Hello and welcome Smile
Sorry to hear of your issue.
Its hard to tell from the pic, but my initial response to any illness is to do a water change to “clean” the tank.
What are your parameters (ammonia,nitrite,nitrate, temp, ph and hardness)?
 😇 Heaven doesn’t want me...
And Hell is afraid I’ll take over! 😈

Thank you for coming back to me so quickly. The picture was the best I can get - he keeps swimming around very quickly. Can't catch him to quarantine him.

It's like a very big pimple?

Just did a proscan and all ok. Will do the change the water though

Having a quick run around the web, is it possible the fish has dug around and caught its lip and theres a bit of an infection?
If the fish is still active and eating well you might want to add some garlic/garlic juice to the food to help boost the immune system and keep the tank clean and they might fight it off on their own

Also, being a cichlid there is a chance it could be from fighting with another fish. They tend to lock mouths and shake like dogs with a bone!

Thank you so much. He is swimming around fine and eating. As can't catch him have just done a change, and out treatment in the water - fingers crossed!
