Plz help don't want he to die

Here we have my beloved fish Spike. Not 100% sure what species he is, or male/female. Plz can u let me no

On his right side a bit behind his right fin he has a little lump under the scales. It isn't open, nor red or getting any bigger as far as we can tell. There is no loss in colour but a loss in appetite. He has now become quite subdued and tends to spend his time in a cubby hole in a rock rather than out swimming like usual.

The lump is on the 3rd stripe back at the bottom. There is a slight discolouration. Anyone know what it is, what species/sex he may be.

Many thanks in advance.

I have no idea, but judging from the fact that it's on the inside instead of outside, it might be bloating. Look that up and see if it looks similar. Feed him peas twice a day if it is. You might want to put him in quarantine if you have a tank for that. If it isn't that, I wouldn't know but I'm guessing it could maybe be a parasite if it isn't bloating.

Hmm. I have no idea what it could be besides bloat. Here's a link I found that might be useful: Fish Bloat, Diagnoses and Treatment

I have no idea about sicknesses and stuff, but I hope you can diagnose and treat it. Good luck.
