Parasite or injury!

Went away on vacation and came home to this. We were gone for 4 days and I will post water parameters tomorrow because I need to pick up a new kit. I have been up for almost 26 hrs at this point so a PWC is out of TE question until tomorrow morning. There are two small spots on both sides of her dorsal fin.

Are they fuzzy spots? It looks to me that he injured himself and maybe got a secondary bacterial infection.

I had the same type of issue with my gbr. I was told daily water changes would clear the bacterial infection up. I would also dose mela/pimafix after you do the daily water changes and see if it clears up
