| || | lump or pimple on fish's lower jaw
I have two Asian Carp that I have had for about 12 years. They are now about 10 inches long and they have been disease free until now. One of them has developed a pimple like lump that projects out forward from it's lower jaw. It is a little pink but it does not look terribly irritated. The pimple grows until it sticks out from the jaw about 1/16 of an inch and then bursts or falls off. When that happens I can see where it was and the spot is a little raw. After about two weeks it again grows big enough for me to notice, stays for about a week and again bursts. The fish is vigorous and whatever it is doesn't seem to affect the behavior of the fish. I have read about something like this before but I can't find it any literature that I have. I don't know if it is fungal, bacterial or what, so I don't know how to treat it. Please help me diagnose the problem so that I can get the right medicine. Jim C. bonneidee
