That's where her scales stick out right? I googled and saw that this afternoon. I will have to check that tomorrow. My dad said the other fish we had did that but it was after it got so much bigger and had been that way for a long time. This is the third fish. Our first fish only got it on one side. She lived that way for over a year. The second fish had it on both sides and lasted 6 to 8 months and it's been almost a year after we lost the first one that the second got it. Now the third one got it real quick.
