I have a geophagus that is breathing rapidly - has been for a few days. Now I see there is a bit of swelling behind his pectoral fin

Any ideas?

Did you just get the fish? Or you've had it for a while in its current tank?

The tanks is stable - has been running about 6 months (No recent fish additions).

I am suspecting columnaris (Cottonmouth)

Currently doing 30% water change per week, about 20 x 3' fish in the 175G,
3 x xp3 filters + AC110

I would put it in a hospital tank and treat.
