Any guess as to what is on/in my Tetras gill?
Looks like a tumor...never seen it before.
Actually I thought he was dead and the snails ate him because I hadn't seen him in forever. Its only a 10 gallon tank with lots of Blyxa.
Anyhow I came home from vacation and he re-appeared because he was hungry and this is how he looks....
Thanks in advance

Yuk! IDK if that's a tumor, cyst, or parasite, but I'd definitely QT the fish just in case it's something contagious. And I'd probably treat the fish with an antibiotic in case it's something treatable.

OK this is weird.....I got up this morning and was getting ready to dose ferts and I saw the aforementioned Tetra lying next to the tank on the table. Dry as....well...dry as a Tetra that had been lying on the table all night. I guess I don't have to euthanize him. He did it all on his own. Suicide do to discomfort? Species preservation? Any ideas?
