HELP! My discus has a big white lump on it

Rate this Entry
I was wondering if anyone know's what's wrong with my blue discus? He/she has over the past couple of days developed a big white lump on it's back and I have no idea what to do.

Does anyone have any advice?

    I am almost certain that that is hole-in-the-head disease. It is very common on Discus and also common near the head(duh). It isn't always on the head, though. I would advise you to look at this: << >>
