Greetings,

I am a new member. I have a small garden hobby pond with about 200 gallons in it. I keep comets mostly and the occasional koi fish. The pond is about 7 years old now and I enjoy it very much.

I have a question for the experienced folk out there. One of my comets, 5-6" and about 5 years old has something about the size of a walnut coming out of her distended and yellowed back end, vent, whatever it is. It appears to be transparent and it looks like she's trying to poop it out. I don't know what this is or if she's going to die. She appears to be behaving normally but she wouldn't eat just now and this thing wasn't there two days earlier. The rest of the fish seem to be fine. Has anyone had experience with this type of problem before??

Thanks for your help.
