Are fish tumors contagious?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am adding some more goldfish to my pond. I wanted to give some abused goldfish a better life. There are three goldfish and a common pleco in a 10 gallon, and I plan to get the goldfish. However one of the goldfish has a tumor like growth on it's head. I was wondering if I should be worried of it spreading to other fish? Are fish tumors contagious, or are there any other things that look like tumors that can spread? Should I be worried about fish TB? I plan to quarantine them, but should I get these fish? It is the whitish goldfish in the corner that has it. Sorry about the picture quality.
