Hello all! Please help with our bala shark, Big Boy. We noticed yesterday that he has something at the right corner of his mouth. It looks like a fish-version of a skin tag. We have kept fish for years, but have never seen this on any fish.
Its in the very far corner of his mouth (if hed open up all the way, yawning, etc), its a transparent gray color (same as his overall color). He doesnt appear to be bothered by it....yet. ANY ideas? Ill try to get a picture.
125 gal fw
comm tank with 3 angels, 2 balas, 2 silver dollars, 6 clown loaches, and 3 botia kubotai. Everyone gets along well. The other bala does prompt him to swim by touching him on the side, but theyve done that since they were the size of shoestring french fries.
Temp is 79.6; ammon and nitrites are 0, nitrates are 20. We have been doing extra water changes to lower the nitrates. pH is 6.6 but stable. We do pwcs and vacuum weekly.
He is approx 6.5 inches long. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
