    Hi there my gold Severum has developed a sore on the top of its fin, in trying to establish what this is and what treatment I should get. I think it's some sort of worm parasite but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated as I wouldn't want to loose the big guy!!

    How do I upload pictures ?

    It is likely not a parasite(or at least not a "worm") because those will tend to have recognizable body parts.
    Could the fish have been injured by a tankmate or a decoration?

    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.

    No need to yell. I saw your post after I posted. My first thought from the close up was an anchor worm, but I don't see a worm. Looking at the second picture, is it possible one of those balas bit the sev?
