My fish has a large growth on his back near his top fin... what could this be?
He has had it for about 5 months now and it seems to be doubling in size every couple of days.
He is very active and healthy other than the mass.
Please help save my fish?
--- WELL... people have asked if my fish made it. He lasted about 6 months in this state, then the growth eventually got so large that he flipped over and was swimming and eating upside down!!!! Not Cool!
Unfortunately, I had to put him to sleep. I was told through a vet (animal doctor) to use CLOVE OIL. I purchased a $5 bottle through a drug store and use the whole bottom is about 1/2 a gallon of water. I place him in the water and he went to sleep in about 1/2 hour. It was sad, since I had him for 2.5 years!
He was very healthy up until the growth and for those that have asked about how I got his fins so big... he was a normal healthy Black Moor bought at a fish store and he grow that way. :)

The signature hole of Blackmoor is a great risk/reward par 4 that plays 370 yards as a dogleg right and 270 yards going straight.
Although that 100 yards shorter sounds tempting, you'd better hit it straight! It is over rough and through an alley of trees that is less than 30 yards wide.
If you opt to play it safe, then you should hit your tee shot straight at the elbow of the dogleg. This leaves a straightforward approach to the very large green.
The green has some subtle breaks to it, but there is a great chance to hole a putt from anywhere on this green!

Haven't posted a video of the tank in a while.
This is our 55 gallon (208ltr) goldfish tank we've been running for the past 10 years or so. The 2 large fish are 5 year old male Shubunkin's (the whiter one is named shuubi, the more orange is called doobi). They are about 8-10 inches with lovely flowing tails. After 2 years they haven't grown much and I think this is their adult size. There are also 2 small shubunkin's in the tank that will grow up to be the size of the big ones (Stripe and Dotti). Our Moor's also known as black moors or black telescope goldish haven't been named just yet. They have soft velvety looking scales. We also have a trinidad pleco and a bristlenose pleco hanging out on the vase with the bubbles. I'm open to questions on the tank and goldfish, local offers in MN on the large shubunkin's are welcome.
Our tank uses a Pennplax "Cascade 1000" canister filter, led lighting, and has lots of good bubblers going. I perform water changes as needed or around once a month depending on how things look. I also make sure to use zeolite in the canister filter to reduce ammonia levels (goldfish are messy when it comes to ammonia).
