my oscar has a weird white thing under its mouth
my tiger oscar has a weird white thing under its bottom lip. it stared out as a small white spot but has gotten bigger and darker in color and is now hanging off of its bottom lip. if you know what this is or how to fix it, please let me know. I have included pictures below. any and all help is appreciated thank you.

try and post your pics again, they seem to have a URL to your gmail account. you will have to host them somewhere, like facebook, or google's free picture site, Pacaso (sp?), can also try photobucket, flikr, or any other similar site.

Photos are not there for me. Try this: assuming they are digital, save them to a file on your computer. Then use the "Manage Attachments" button below the text box (when you create a post), it gives you the various extensions that will work, probably jpg is easiest. "Browse" to the file on your PC and click the photo.

I'd like to see this, as I'm wondering if it is similar to something I have noticed on my fish.

Photos worked. They are a bit blurry [I couldn't do better, it is not easy photographing moving fish] but I think I have seen something similar on a couple of my fish now and then. Hopefully one of the experts will see this and comment for us.
