Hi All,

I've read lots of information on here and what has happened has made me join and ask for your opinions.

I think he got stuck between a rock and then forced his way through, he was perfectly fine yesterday. I've separated him in a tub with holes but in the same tank. I do have a breeder net but I find the fish still attack through the net from previous experiences.

I have a 10g tank setup with a few tropical fish which I am looking to clear and setup as a hospital tank for such occasions . What should I do in the meantime?

He has the open wound with white showing through and is also on his side still breathing though.

Thanks hopefully he'll make it!

If he is going upside down doesn't look good, but then I have had fish that had zero fins or lips recover.

I would put a small amount of salt in there to help keep infections away otherwise there is not much to do.
