One of my Lemon Jakes just started showing this today. It was definitely not there yesterday and I don't believe it was there when I was feeding them this morning.

It looks like a ball is on the side of his mouth. I moved some fish out of the tank Saturday so the last few days there has been a bit of fighting going on. I wanted to know if this was caused by that or something more serious? I don't want it to spread to other fish if its sick obviously.

It doesn't really look like a fighting wound, more like a growth. It could be nothing, could be parasite, could be a growth of some kind that there is not much you can do about.

Yeah, hopefully its nothing serious and whatever it is doesn't infect the whole tank. I didn't have time to look for him this morning when feeding them as I had to get to work, but hopefully I get a chance this evening.
