Hey guys, just looking for advice as my Sajica has had a spot come up next his mouth. It started out like a pimple you'd get as a teen, just a lump next to his mouth buts started indenting and going lighter which leads me to think it may be a parasite?
He's kept in a 60L heavily planted tank, lots of places to explore! (He has got a bigger tank waiting for him for when he outgrows this one). I obtained him whilst picking up a racking system for my fry and he is by far my favourite fish, so it's now starting to bother me :( :(

My water quality is spot on,
Ammonia - 0ppm
Nitrite - 0ppm
Nitrate 2.5ppm
pH - 8.0

I'll try my best to net him and get a picture of it. Anybody experienced this before? If so, how did you go about treating it?

Many thanks!

He got a tad upset when netting him so I tried my best to get a picture but he's still shying away. Basically that lump next to his mouth is swollen but indents to the middle and has gone a white/pink.
