I bought a blood red parrot cichlid about a week ago. He's about 7 inches. I noticed a strange dot coming from the top left side of his head. Something white from a hole maybe? He's active and acting fine. What could this be? Could it harm my other fish?

Just a guess but it looks like what is called hole in the head which is usually related to poor water conditions or incorrect water conditions for certain species.

What are your aquarium test results for pH, ammonia, nitrite and especially nitrate?
