well I pulled it off last night and it is coming back. He is still alive but I feel terrible that I can't fix him.

It has been five days since I pulled off one of the nastiest things I have ever seen. The fish is eating and swimming normal and the nasty tube has not reappeared. I am not a fish doctor but I would guess it was a parasite. Hope this helps.

change the water temp it will change the fishes metabolism if your up near 80 bring it back to 76 if your around 76 bring it up to 79 but genrally i wouldn't worry about it it's if he completely stops poppin a squat you need to be concerned

I am glad he is still acting healthy. I wonder if you should treat for IP. I am no expert with IPs, maybe someone else will have an opinion.

Treating for IP sounds logical to me, but I'm no expert either.
