One of our goldfish has developed a lump on its head. Its the same colour as he/she is.

I've been to our local pet shop and the guy there is pretty clued up on fish, but had no idea about our chap. I bought some methylene blue, just to try something, and oddly enough, when I peer at him through the colour, the lump looks a different colour - similar to the white ish colour on the other fish.

Anyway, I've googled, and drawn a blank and would really appreciate some help on this, if anyone has any ideas please?

Thanks xx

Oh thanks Bodger! Thats great. I've registered and hope they can help. I'll try to look more like a damsel in distress and less like an old battleaxe who's been dragged through a hedge backwards ;)

If it is fungal, a drop of potassium permangenate in the water may help.

Hope you get some answers on the fish forum.
