I need some opinions on something.....

Could someone take a look at the pic and tell if that looks like a sore or some sort of bruise on my goldfish. When i left him he didnt have that.
his tank mates are a albino cory and a otocinclus. this morning i notced the oto chasing the goldfish and trying to latch onto him maybe he finally succeeded. lol

Add a little stress coat to the water to help em heal. If you have a hospital tank you may want to remove him for safe measure.

No its not the same tank that tank is still having its issues Im thinking the ammonia is coming from the filters Im think of stripping down the filters and just starting over Im purchasing a tank thats been running for 2 years with 3 guppies in it and put my neon in there

It appears to be either a suck mark or a scrape from getting stuck somewhere. If you have seen chasing, my money is on someone having a snack while the goldfish was sleeping.
