Auriga Butterfly w/ Orange "growth"

My Auriga has been in the tank for several months. Noticed a small orange "growth" that seems to be on in the area of his pectoral fins and or rear edge of the gill plate.

At first it looked like a piece of Formula One flake stuck on the back of his gill plate, but it hasn't gone away for a couple of days.

He's as active as ever, eating and doing the things fish are supposed to do (like annoying and bullying the other tank mates)

Here's a couple of pics - hard to take 'cause he still moves **** fast.



and



Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I'll try to get some better pics...maybe if I ask him to say "Cheese?" Actually I think I can snap some more at tomorrow's feeding...while he occupied stuffing his face.
