Lumps on my Orandas head??!!

Hi everyone!! My Oranda Goldfish has developed some lumps on his head, some are the same colour of his wen but a couple are slightly whitish. Heís been through some prettty serious shock Iím the past week, his best friend died in an ammonia spike and he was in a hospital tank for a few days. Heís looking back to normal, but maybe a little lonely (Iíll buy him a new friend in the next couple days). What are these lumps?? Any advice or comments are extremely appreciated!!

Not sure if that's anything at all. You might have to wait and see if it gets worse.

Hello Lilly...

Orandas have lumpy heads. I keep these fish and as they age, the wen gets lumpy. The fish looks fine to me. Just keep the tank water clean with lots of large, weekly water changes. I add a teaspoon of standard aquarium salt to every 5 gallons of replacement water and feed organic spinach every week in addition to their regular diet to keep them healthy.

Thank you so much 😊I havenít had Orandas for very long so I wasnít sure if lumpy wens were normal.
