Fish attacked by bottom feeder

My pearl danio was presumed to be attacked by a territorial bottom feeder. He has bloody patches and spots that have now turned white. I'm very worried this is an infection. What do I do? Is there hope? He was swimming poorly and at some points barely moving. I secluded him in a fish hatchery for now to keep him from being preyed on.

What other fish do you have? Why do you presume it was attacked? Have you seen a fish attack another?

Can you quarantine the fish into another tank to avoid any infection spreading?
