Hi friends..... Anyone familiar with anchorworm? My fancy has some string-like thing hanging from its gill.

Doesn't look like anchor worm to me. Looks like a tumor, or there's some kind of fluid buildup in there. And you said it wasn't there yesterday? So it can't be a tumor. I've never seen anything like that before.

What type of substrate do you have? It is possible to get substrate caught in folds, depending on type. If it is a possibility, I’d call a local aquatic center and ask about how best to take care without causing any damage to your fish.
