 My  Jewel  developed  a  lump/tumor  under  her  gills  few  months  back,  but  she  was  active  as  usual  for  longtime,  competing  for  food  and  chasing  away  other  cichlids,  but  past  few  days,  she  was  more  isolated  and  her  tumor  seems  to  have  grown  big  and  she  was  not  able  to  flap  her  gills  and  always  stayed  near  to  the  water  column.   Crying or Very sad  
 
 Thought  it  was  high-time  i  should  help  her,  so  decided  to  operate  the  tumor  and  performed  a  little  surgery  on  23rd  Dec  night  and  removed  the  tumor.  But  she  was  much  exhausted  after  her  surgery,  may  be  it  was  a  major  surgery  for  her...just  kept  my  fingers  crossed..that  everything  should  go  well.   Surprised  
 
 Today(25th  Dec)  she  started  eating  her  food  well  and  swim  freely  and  active   Cheering  
 
 Pics  are  posted  for  your  reference.

 hey  Chetesh...I  am  not  a  vet  ..just  a  fish  hobbyist.  Wanting  to  save  my  fish  Smile  Its   worth  trying  to  cure  than  to  see  them  suffer!!!
 
 ....I  have  done  similar  treatment  earlier...thought  i  could  share  some  experience.
 
 @  Vinod_Uthaiah
 
 Equipment  used  are  
 1.  stainless  scissors  
 2.  small  tweezers
 3.  Some  gauze  and  cotton
 4.  small  glass  tank
 
 Procedure..
 
 I  have  a  small  tank  for  operating  as  I  need  to  take  the  fish  out  of  the  water  for  operation  and  need  to  leave  it  back  in  water  every  few  seconds  for  breathing.  If  it’s  a  big  quarantine  tank,  will  be  difficult  to  catch  back  the  fish  to  continue  the  procedure.
 
 Try  to  examine  the  other  side  of  the  gill  that  is  not  infected  to  check  for  the  exact  build-up  of  the  normal  gill,  so  u  will  not  disturb  the  vital  organ  while  operating  the  infected  part.
 I  start  by  cutting  the  protruding  tumor  hanging  out...and  remove  it  with  tweezers  and  leave  the  fish  back  in  water  for  a  min.  take  it  back  and  slowly  cut  the  remaining  tumor  in  the  interior  part  of  the  gill...just  be  patient,  do  not  stress  out  the  fish  to  a  great  extent...at  every  interval  of  the  operation  just  check  how  your  fish  acts  and  breath.  If  you  see  any  sign  of  difficulty.  You  can  stop  the  procedure  and  start  it  over  in  few  days  after  the  fish  recovers.  I  have  done  the  same  kind  of  procedure  over  a  week  by  slowly  removing  parts  of  tumor  in  every  sitting....
 After  the  procedure  leave  the  fish  in  well  aerated  quarantine  tank  with  diluted  aquarium/crystal(non  iodised)  salt.  I  feed  the  fish  with  dry  shrimp/artemia  soaked  in  table  salt  for  quarantined  time.  Once  the  fish  recovers,  it  can  be  back  in  the  main  tank.  
 This  time  my  fish  recovered  in  5  days  and  its  back  in  the  main  tank  with  other  cichlid,  active  and  competing  again     Very Happy  
 Note:  
 @  cutting  off  the  tumor  does  make  the  fish  bleed  no  need  to  panic.
 @  do  not  keep  the  fish  out  of  water  for  a  long  time...leave  it  back  in  water  every  30  secs  to  a  min  and  check  the  fish  behavior  before  continuing  the  procedure..
 @  do  not  hurry  up...patience  is  the  virtue
 
 Regards,
 Senthil
