bump on lip?

Postby brianchisholm76 » Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:50 pm

I think I read somewhere before that this is normal from digging and stuff but my Oscar has a bump or knot on his bottom lip. Is this normal? I would post a pic of it but I dont know how to do it.

Os often get a callus on the point of the lower jaw from digging,so that could be normal.

As far as posting pics,JohnL has an excellent primer stickied in The Photo Gallery forum.I'd link you but I'm on a little mobile netbook.
Just think about it.

Yes it`s normal for them to get a callus.
But posting a pic, to make sure is not a bad idea.
Link Oniky was talking about.

Here are a few pics on my 4.5 inch oscar Curtis. In one you can see the bump on his lip. It actually looks worse in the picture than in person.

Hi
That is normal. :) I have had my red oscar for 4 years and he's always had a bump like that on his lip.. They are right, it's from digging in the gravel. ;D
Very nice tiger you have. :fro:

Look`s like he has bumped it on something.
He look`s good other wise.


I would just keep a close eye on it, and if get`s worse then please get back to us. :)
