I would say it's been there for at least 3 months now. It is round and brownish. It's semi-shiney but it looks as though it's a wart or something. At the same time the mouth has this very thin webby, kinda skin peel, stuff inside. However, it eats. It swims normally, eats, and seems to live with it.
I can't honestly tell whether or not it is severly bother it though. He folds his lower lip a lot.
Just last night, I gently took it out of the tank, wore disposable latex gloves (rinsed in the outside), and took a scalpal just to see what it felt like. It felt to me as though it's a teeth formation because it's pretty hard and rough (I can hear the scalpal blade scratching the outside of that foreign thing).
At first I said "Well maybe it's teeth". But normally I see triggers in LFS
and the teeth look like false teeth and they're pretty whole, you know? Not round and brownish and stuff.
Nothing was happening 3 months ago. I didn't do any specific changes. It's pretty much how it is.
It's the lone specimen in the tank right now. I haven't added any additional live rocks in seven months. I feed it frozen brime, frozen mysis, formula 2, and once I served it live worms that lasted about a week and a half. That was a month ago.
Please help!! I appreciate the input, y'all. Thank you ver much.
He's still doing well now, he's swimming normally, no signs of shock or stress or anything coming back to the display.
I am just concerned, I don't know if anyone else had that experience.
