Yes, it has a black tint which most tumor cases are and when you remove the flesh, it also is black in the deeper layers. Do you have a photo of her fish? What fish is it?

Moby remains perky as usual although when he is bored by himself, he sits on the bottom. Lonely but I can't mix him with other fish until the wounds heal at least. I've been administering betadine on his deep wounds from time to time but it looks like the wounds are healing a bit. I am just glad the blood clot quickly after the surgery.

Here he is. They're hasty shots so they aren't good quality. Excuse the water marks.




The baby is four inches already. That's a lot from 2.5 inches. Woo hoo!
