I'm assuming it is ammonia burn. How long have you had the fish? Do you have a test kit to test for ammonia?

When in doubt, do a water change and hopefully you have a conditioner like seachem prime.

50% Water change would be good, just make sure you are using a dechlorinator to remove the chlorine. Is there a filter of some sort on the tank?

"Usually"? Unless you are taking only a small amount of water then that could be an issue.

How is your fish doing?
