I need some help. I have 2 Oscars in a 55 gallon tank. They've been living happily for about 6 years now. However, recently one of my o's had a growth start to develope near his vent/anus. It started off as what looked like a bit of swelling, then overnight bloomed into this:

Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? We've been consulting our local vet, and aquarium guy, but nothing seems to be helping. We've done 2 rounds of antibiotics, and it really messed up the balance of the tank. We've also tried epsom and aquarium salt, and we're seeing no change. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

welcome to OFL... sorry you had a bad time when joining the community...

the fish shows blockage or some sort of infection... that is bad...
you need to medicate in a hospital tank.. using antibiotics.
