Hi everyone. I am looking for some advice regarding my Angel fish. About 3 weeks ago I noticed what looked like a open wound on the underside of his body, thought it may have been a bite mark from another fish, I removed the carbon from my filters and started treating the water with API melafix for 7 days, unfortunately the wound seemed to get larger so I switched to API pimafix again for over a week . Still no improvement.

Judging from the location, my guess is either damage caused by a prolapsed anus or vent, that led to infection.
Really nothing to do but try to keep the infection in check. The Melafix is said to work as a disinfectant, so good idea to continue using it.
