Injury or something else?

Hello all, this is Tiger, my oldest Cichlid, she's just territorial so I have seen other markings on her like this from a few scraps, this one looks slightly different, what do we think?

looks like a scrape from rocks or an ornament after trying to squeeze through a gap (like that cave) or running from an aggressor.
what do u mean when u say different? it could be HITH, but thats usually on top of the head as opposed to on the side.

beautiful fish though!

Thumbs up

Thanks! Yeah she is very pretty, i think you're right about the squeezing through a tight gap, and they flick around when they're spawning anyway!
I was worrying about a fungus or illness when i said 'something different', hopefully nothing to worry too much about!
