Weird gray spot

I bought this gourami yesterday and he had a tiny gray spot on his back. Since yesterday- it has grown (see image). I treated with Microbe Lift Herbtana to boost his immune system. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks!

Weird gray spot

Could it be columnaris? The ‘saddleback’ lesion is pretty unmistakable. Do some research on this disease and draw your own conclusions on this assessment as I’m no expert in fish diseases.

If it is columnaris, he needs to be isolated or he'll infect the whole tank

You can add Api Furan-2 to the water column, and Thomas labs fish Mox or Mardel Maracyn 2 to a food blend. Aquarium co-op, Aquarium science web site and Hikari all have a formula to make medicated food

Or, save your money and return him to the fish store since you just bought it

I ended up isolating him and treating him with anti-biotic- however he ended up dying and I returned him. The tank thankfully seems healthy and it doesn’t seem like anyone got the disease

Oh good. Sorry you lost the fish, but at least the tank is good
