    Hello all! Was hoping to get some clarifacation on this. My dad has a chinese algae eater that developed some pink lumps on its face overnight, they're symmetrical though, so im not sure of its something i should be worried about or not.

    Thanks anyway 2in10 :)

    Well as an update he still looks fine and havnt seen any change in behavior. So i suppose its nothing to worry about. But if anybody has input, fire away.

    Looks to me like he was rubing his face into something last night and he got scrached up. Because it doesnt really look like lumps to me from the picture. I wish you luck and I hope he is ok.
