Lumpy shrimp

I just picked this guy up and acclimated him and put him in my tank and I see a lump on his side or somthing attached to him. He seems ok , still doing the shrimp thing but seems to have a tumor type thing attached to him. Should I be concerned. ? Take him out ? Or just leave it assume he'll be fine?

Well he's came back out from hiding, he's the most adventurous of the 3 I put in. I guess I'll name him lumpy and let it rest. But has anyone seen this before? I got a better pic here also

Sorry. Haven't seen it before. Doesn't look too good, though. Glad to hear he's acting normal. Hope he does okay!

Had this on one of my peppermint shrimps. It could be a mad moult, injury or worse case a parasite. Qt him for awhile see how if it moults and goes away

Is that it's real color? A sponge won't contract into the rocks.

Lumpy is still doing ok he's qt'd in about a gallon jug now for almost 36 hours after his surgery. He's still a little slow to eat when I put a sinking pellet in his jug.

Did you just grab the thing and pull it off? Or what did the "surgery" consist of? How on earth did you get him to stay still?

Lol i told him to stay. and pointed a stern finger on the ground in front of him.
no i held the lump with tweezers and sliced a slit between it and the body. And the parasite kinda just fell out. I think I did the parasite in with the tweezers but he is doing much better now. Pushing 52 hours in his gallon of water
