    I have a small (about 7") snowflake eel in my quarantine tank right now. I've had him about 5 days or so. He was looking ok but all of a sudden this evening he had 3 or 4 round white bumps on his head that look like tumors. It looks kind of like there is a small marble under the skin. They are irritating him and he keeps shaking his head. Any ideas on what this is and how to treat it?

    I'll try to get pictures while the lights are on later today.

    I was just heading to bed and passed the tank and heard splashing so I turned the light on and noticed he was exploring the tank. It appears the bumps have busted (or he scratched them on rock) and are slightly bleeding. He has finally eaten a piece of squid though so maybe at least his hunger strike is over.
