It looks very much like a flashing tear... where the fish was scratching and caught its self on something. I would echo everyone else in changing water 50% a day and observe any further issues. Examine your substrate for sharp objects.FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

i think it is a tear, the other dieses that were mentioned said that their would be ammonia present or that there are tempature swings. my tank has never had an issue with that.
he seems find and is eating as usual. nothing sharp i found. i will be doing 50 % water changes every other dayi hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!
