    Question Strange large pimple near gill

    Hi all, I have a koi pond, amongst the inhabitants are Rudd and normal "goldfish".

    One of the Rudd and goldfish have a growth just infront of the gills. This growth appears uninfected, not swollen, and causes no apparent distress change in behaviour.

    I've tried Bacterad anti ulcer and flukes as per instructions with no discernible effect.

    I then tried Cloverleaf absolute CT with the same result.

    I'll try to add some photos.

    Many thanks for any replies,

    Edit; I think I've uploaded photos.

    It would have been much better if you had uploaded the photos first ( hindsight is a wonderful thing ) and then people could of
    advised you on any treatment ( if any was needed in the first place ) before you had put any treatment in your pond, did somebody
    tell you to add it or did you panic, don't worry we've all done that but get the photos back up and then you will hopefully get the
    right advice...………

    Thanks, can see them now but not very clear, your fish look very nice so please don't put anything else in your pond
    until somebody who knows about treatment can advise, I don't really think you have any thing to worry about, as you said
    no distress and feeding ok.....

    Can't really tell from the pictures, but could be a little bit of carp pox but can definitely not confirm that from those photos.

    Are you able to bowl the fish and get a better photo?

    Not a good idea to put treatments in unless you've identified what you're treating.

    Looks like a small tumour to me. Maybe wrong. Need better photo as RS says.
    I have a gold fish with 2 tumours.
    Its had them for 4 years now. And its happy as Larry. My 5 year old grandsons fish. So I have to keep it going or there will be hell to pay.
