Hi All,
Need some advice.
One of my victorian cichlid (Broken bar) has a small white bump on lower lip.
Is this due to fighting or fungus and bacterial? i already use rock salt 3 teaspoon per gallon and treated him for 2 weeks. Then i used rock salt + methylene blue dip method and treated him for 3 days, 6 hours per day. but the white bump is still there. he is still eating good and active.
shall i ignore this?
Thanks

Hi All,
Some updates, i gave this Victorian cichlid another round of treatment with Sodium Nifurstyrenate anti-biotic plus rock salt in a pail (with air pump) for 3 days.
after 3 days, the white bump on the lower lips is still there. Could this be a lip lock fighting injury scar?
The fish is still eating pallets fine.
Thanks

Sorry you haven't gotten a response yet.

I can't tell from the pics where or how large the bump is on the lower lip. It's possible it is from fighting with the other fish.

Can you post the tank dimensions and what other fish are with him?
