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 place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
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.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

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.
