Dwarf Gourami

So I've had him probably for 2 months now. I'm not sure how long these have been here but they look like bite marks? I'm not sure, but if they aren't could anyone identity what they are? Sorry for less than great pics.... You can see one.above the left eye and another on the left side of him.

Can't tell anything from those pictures. If your camera has a Macro function, use that as it gets good close up pictures. But you thinking they look like bite marks made me think of ulcers, which are a bacterial infection.

Will these pictures help? I'm kind of stuck with my phone camera for the time being.... If I can get any better pictures I will post them! He really doesn't like getting his picture taken....

Just too hard to see in the pictures. Did you look up ulcers in fish? If they look like bite marks that's the only thing I can think of. If they are holes in the skin.

I looked up ulcers but most seem to show blood as well in the ulcer. On my dg, they're just white. Is this the first step to becoming an ulcer?
