I have a 120 litre tank with a mixture of cichlids. the biggest fish in the tank has developed 3 lumps on the front of its face. i first noticed it about a month ago, and thought with regular water changes it might heal. It has now got very big and *** notied more appearing next to it.

Its like a pinky fleshy lump the size of a pea

Please advise on what it could be and how i could treat it.

not sure how to show u a pic of it. i could email it if u wouldnt mind.

many thanks

That doesn't look good at all. You said it's grown so I'd say it's a tumor of some kind. How does the fish act compared to the others in the tank ? What are your water parameters ?
