Hi I wonder if anyone can help me. Iv 2 bloodred parrot fish, had them about 5 yrs. They both are about the size of my hand. Recently one of them has developed a pea sized bump just above its eyes. Is this normal? It's a healthy fish and appears to be happy enough. Just want to know if this is normal. Thank u

Not the size but your water quality like ammonia, nitrate/nitrites, ph and alkalinity. Also when was your last water change as well? A clean tank can help with what possibly could be swelling or a possible bacterial infection

Oh also how do their gills look? Red or inflamed?
Gills r normal looking, fish is healthy. The bump is like a knuckle no tares or paracites on the skin. Water is cleaned regularly, green tinge is from a plant near the surface. Fish is eating normally as well as behaving as normal. Other fish is healthy
