Unhappy could this be Columnaris?? please help!

If columnaris is what this is, I want to treat fast. It's so hard to get a good picture of it because she is still so active, but it just appeared today. It's a white bubble type thing in her mouth. She's eating just fine and swimming completely normal. I'm so worried. Please help. She's the red wag in the pics..

well the white bubble in her mouth appears to have popped. I see no signs of an open wound/infection. I guess I'll just watch it....

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

The best thing to do is to keep an eye on little white marks to see if they grow/get worse. Keeping up with water changes and making sure the water is pristine is sometimes the best treatment. Sometimes I think of these little white skin marks that come and go to be almost like "fish acne". Or even little bumps/bruises from bumping into objects in the tank like sharp rocks or wood. Looks like you may have a few decorations/rocks that could injure a fish if they are getting chased or are scared and bang into it.

Don't think it's columnaris.
