    Could be White Spot or Fungus, we would need a good close up shot of him/her to make a better diagnosis.

    Size of tank in gallons or litres.
    How many fish and which type.
    Water stats in ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and ph.

    Any redness to the pimple.
    Does it look like the pimple filled with fluid.
    is the pimple ulcerating the skin away.

    its a 29 gallon tank. all fish are in my signature. i tested the water and everything was normal. it just looks like a white bump on him. it went away but another appeared in a different spot. could it be white spot? i really hope its not fungus.

    A bit off topic but, you only have 1 clown loach :(
    These guys need a group to feel safe & happy.

    How big are the lumps.
    If bigger than a grain of salt I would issolate and try a bacterial med.
