Green Chromis Disease?

One of the three green chromis I have in QT has a lesion on it's lateral line. Picture below isn't good, but best I was able to get. Any ideas? Treatment?

Water parameters? The first thing to fogure out is if this is secondary to some type of trauma or if this an inceftion. It is difficult to tell from the picture, does the effected area appear to be an ulcer (deeper hole) or more of a superficial surface issue?

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Treat the individual fish with this stuff until we can assess what may be wrong and how to properly treat the problem. It is an antiseptic and will help keep the wound clean. Wound Control is another, but may not be available any more. It would be best if you can isolate the fish into a hospital tank with half a dose of stress coat.

Water parameters are very important...numbers please.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
