What would I use to medicate that? He seems like heís acting normal, actively swimming, eating and Iíve seen him go for the tetras if they are in his way.

I think praziquantel. If it is in fact a gill fluke. If it's bacterial or a fungus I'd go with erythromycin or triple sulfa by API.

You could wait to see if it gets worse or not. Get the meds just in case.

Ok thank you, to be honest, the pictures make the Gill look whiter than what they do to the eye

Today I have tried to take a picture of him from the top, to me the white bit on one side of his gills looks like if you peel some skin on your finger and that bit of skin is paler than what your skin is ( if you get my meaning) like the Gill is just that thin at that point that there is less colour? What do people think? Click image for larger version
