    Oh poor guy. Definitely looks more like an injury than an illness. Sure hope he heals up.
    Just to throw this out there, would you by any chance have plants tied to driftwood or other décor?
    If so, is the thread tight? I had a cory get stuck under thread that was not tight enough tying some moss to driftwood.
    I got him out and didn't see an injury like yours, but he died a few days later.

    I thought you could use in in addition to something stronger since it isn't antibacterial or a medicine. I have not had to use it in a while, but last time I had some scale issues on a gold barb I used it with some antibiotics and it worked well to heal him 100%.
