Hi just new today to the forums and also to a new rescued oscar that is 11" long. He has HITH but I know with good water quality and proper feeding that will heal with time. My question is my fish has a wart like bump on its face just below his lower lip. Any idea what this is? I will try and post a pic.

Thanks Jason for the link. I guess it was a very newbie question but hey I am a newbie as of today. LOL!!! His bump is very pronounced and it looked like he might have had a health issue but after reading what you posted I see it is nothing to worry about :) Now to just focus on clearing up the HITH and he will look as good as new again.

hi there


1. one of my bigger tiger oscar,8" has one of the lump under its chin.
2. honest, it was not there when it was about 1.5".
3. but the lump became more visible when it was about 5" in size.
4. with the lump, it still fights for food, putting its nose into the other 9 oscars business.
5. i guess it is alright.
