Well it's not on his gills..... It doesn't look like a fungus....

I can only guess that it's a tumor of some kind...

How's he doing?
Hes good but to be honest i haven't really checked him over in a while- the growth kind of creeps me out so I tend not to look at it... Last time I looked it did look a little bigger....his eye is also still messed up and im almost certain he's blind in that eye. Right now he's living in a cup for a few days while I re silicone the dividers in- when he's back in tank I will do a visual exam lol

a few days ago when I put him back in the tank the growth was all red and looked bloody... Now all the red is gone but the growth has been flaking off and his cheeks look like they have "dry skin" all over them :( Overall he's looking very pale and unhealthy.
