HELP! Striped Peacock Eel has strange pimple like lump!!!!!
 
Hi everyone,

I recently bought a Striped Peacock Eel, from petsmart. Last night I noticed a strange lump on its right side somewhat near its tail. I'm really worried...It looks like a yellow...pimple..with a potruding white center!! Please help, I'm so scared that I'm going to be the reason it dies!!!! I don't handle pets dying very well..:cry::cry::cry:

It could be a tumor if it is your eel will be fine.

Does it look like it could be a worm or parasite?
You may want to look through the sticky on tropical fish disease, may see a picture of a fish with a spot like yours.
