Hey all,

My tiger Oscar has a lump on his lip and I'm wondering what it is I read it's from digging in gravel but he is always stretching his mouth like it's irritating him just wanna make sure it's not something I can help by medicating

Cheers

welcome
it looks like a normal chin pimple to me nothing to worry about unless it starts to affect his eating if your really worried about it you can give us a run down of your setup and people will advise you on any problems they see

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next

Welcome to our little community. Absolutely nothing to worry about, these protrusions on the bottom lip are quite normal And you'll probably find most Oscars develop them after a few months, many of mine certainly did.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Thanks guys,

Haha when I bought the tank it came with 5 black tetras and the oscars don't seem to care about them at the moment.
