    Hello Iíve returned from a long bout of silence; but Ares has changed from blue to black and now heís got this weird spot near his head. I donít know if itís more colour changing or if heís sick?

    I can’t quite tell from the pictures, but does it look more like a gouge or something attached on it?
    If it’s a gouge, I would guess an injury of some sort. If something’s attatched to it, then it may be a parasite

    It is hard to tell from the pic but it looks like missing scales from an injury such as a burn from sleeping against a heater. you might get a clearer pic if you removed the water spots on the glass.

    This was my first thought, as well. Looks like a burn mark.

    I was reading last night in a book about fish health a thing called bacterial ulceration. the description and pictures looks a lot like what you have going on. I think it is treatable. you may want to look up the information and see if this might be the issue.
