Hi there,

I'm not sure what it is, but have seen ulcers eventually rupture that are linked to Uronema.

The lump will grow outwards and ultimately rupture, but quite often the fish eats until the day before it dies. I'm sorry but irrespective of what you do now, this fish is unlikely to recover.

All the best,
Angie
