I went to the pet store today and picked up some anti-bacterial medication (tetracycline), in case its septicemia (blood infection). But, the lump might be a tumor, in which case, not much can be done for him :( I called a pet store/clinic that said I can bring him in and they have a doctor that can take a look at him and maybe tell me what's wrong and/or give some injections to help or even ease his pain. It's a bit expensive to take him in, and as my father "kindly" reminded me over the phone: "What? Doctor? It's a goldfish, who take's a goldfish to the doctor?". Yes baba, I'm taking Spots to the doctor's if my "remedies" don't work, humph!
When my goldfish are sick, my world crumbles...what the heck am I going to do when I have kids...may God save me and those around me!
You can see the lump on the left side...my poor baby :(
