I'll post some pics later today, but I wanted to know if anyone else has had a fish with Melanoma?
My platinum hmpk has a black raised bump between his eyes, it looks like Melanoma.
Any suggestions?
Will he have a shorter life? Do they spread? Do they get larger?

Well i know bettas can get cancer and thus tumors. Infact, it seems to be getting much more common now a day. Its possible that he does have a tumor, a pic may help comfirm this if possible. Imo, a tumor on the head is risky. If it stays small he may be fine, if it grows, well then..
