It is most likely a gas bubble or tissue build-up that forms form them constantly running into the tank. It is not life threatening but can lead to bigger problems. If it keeps running into the side of the tank it will most likely crack its cuttlebone and possible die.

actually it is getting smaller :smile: im keeping the water cooler, it seems to be calming him down. is there any kind of antibiotics or medicine i could put into the water that might help?
