What is this spot?

Last night I noticed one white spot on my blood parrot fish... He is yellow and has one white spot... I'm 98percent sure it's no ich... It looks like a sore someone gets inside of their mouth.....I'm not sure if you can see it inthe pic... He was hiding....i think that it could be a scrath from swimming fast or something near that idea.....what do you guys think?

Can't see any spot. If it's a wound, just keep an eye on it and keep the water clean. It should heal fast enough.

+1. Can't see anything in the pic. Some aquarists don't use chemicals in their tanks but if it's an open wound, I've had Melafix work wonders in my tank.

How do you use melafix? Do I have to remove the carbon in my tank for it to work?would it harm the other fish?

If he has a sore or injury and your not prepared to properly qt him & possibily treat him, i would not risk purchasing a sick or injured fish. Just my opinion though.

Can you get a better picture? It's never good to medicate a fish if you don't have to.

Clean water has always cleared up any white spots I've had on my parrots.

Are you able to qt him? Introducing a possibily sick fish to your main tank may not be the wisest idea esp because you dont know what is wrong with him. If possible, can you get a better pic of the spot? Healthy water & some aq salt may be all he needs if its nothing serious.
