    It looks like a wound. Maybe he scraped himself on those sharp rocks. I would put him in qt with some melafix and/or pimafix until he healed up.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Looks bad - I agree with Mommy1 100%.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    I'm not 100% on this but looks like ulcers to me. I'm no expert on their treatment, but large arowana will get lip ulcers which look very similiar. his condition doesn't look very good at all. I hope you can do a bit of further research into this and find out the cause. IME they show up when wounds take longer to heal than usual (clean freshwater helps the best) and can take awhile to heal up.
