Needed some advice. I have spotted a danio not looking too good to me although he is very active and swimming as usual. He did have a injury to his scale on his left side but healed up without treatment quickly. Unfortunately a small pinky/white lump appeared between the injury and tail. Is this connected? I cant work out if it is a single spot or an open wound. A picture of this would be impossible as he wont keep still. I had a similar scale injury before with another danio and treated it with melafix but it died soon after.
I have done a clean up a couple days ago taking 20% of the water out before noticing this spot.
I dont have a spare tank to keep him in but would a large vase be ok for temporary measure? He doesn't seem to be attacked or anything. Had 14 about a year ago and lost one in the first month. Rest are doing ok until this one. Help!
Thanks in advance
