Hello. I’ve had a hairy puffer going on almost 9 years now. Most reports online list their lifespan for 8-15 years but I’ve seen a few list much longer. Anyways, my old man developed a white lesion near his upper belly. I thought it may be a burn from the heater as he sometimes sleeps near it and he has gotten burns before, but they always heal quickly. Not this one, it hasn’t healed, or gotten worse, for nearly a year. Also, just recently, I noticed a change in eye color. Is this fish glaucoma?

I moved the heaters to a corner where he never goes after. I didn’t know they made covers that you can put on yourself though thanks. I bought a heater with a cover on it once before and it shorted out. Anybody out there have experience with older fish? If it’s an active infection or something i can treat I’d like to know what to look for
