Remember how earlier in this thread I mentioned the gourami had a sore on his head? Now he has one on the other side. And- when he was eating just now, bubbles were coming out of the one sore. So now what do I do?!?!

Upon closer inspection he has one large sore on one side that bubbles come out of when he gets air from the surface. On the other side he has a sore half the size of the first sore and a smaller sore above his eye. *sigh*. I'm sure this isn't good.

Can you post some more pictures? Does it look like a burn?
Sounds like he is injuring himself on something and we need to find out what!

I will really try to get some pics after I get home. There are no plastic plants, the decoration has no sharp areas (I checked it really good) and the gravel is pebbles and sand now and not pointy or jagged. I moved the heater higher in the tank so he can't lay against it ( I did that after the first sore appeared).

I found a pic on the Internet and it looks like the same kind of lesions. it seems like it would be painful. Should I euthanize him so he doesn't suffer? That stuff is eating holes into his head. *cry*
