Gsp not eating and has a lump on side

My gsp has not eaten in quite sometime today we noticed a lump on one side. We tried all possible treatments they we no of. He looks like he is on his death bed. We have 6 other puffers and none of them are showing these symptoms. Please help..

Most GSP are wild caught and come with internal parasites.

Try feeding him frozen bloodworms or beefheart soaked in garlic juice. Or you can try to feed metroplex paste. Sometimes it is hard to get them to eat non living food. Live snails and crustaceans are best to feed, but they won't get the meds in him.
