My Oscars chinple (I think I saw someone on here call it that) is getting pretty large, about the diameter of a pea but it does protrude very far from his/her chin. My other Oscar has an almost non existent chinple. I was wondering how big they are supposed to get, ill try to figure out how to post a picture so I can show you.

Thank You

I only saw massive chin pimples on Oscars with sharp edged substrate. Never had one of this on sand.
It's just a theory but I think in most cases it's caused by forgein matter in a open wound that don't get time to heal because the fish is digging all the time. After some time it capsels and becomes harden and like cartilage
We need to stop talking about the people as if they were the crown of creation.
