We've had 2 males for a few weeks and occasionally they tussle. But today we noticed a bump on the side of the main antagonist and late tonight I noticed it looked like a wound. Is this a possible/expected wound from males fighting?

I've stuck him in a isolation tank. What do I use to help him heal? Can I use rock salt? Melafix?

I read older threads about using salt and melafix, so am trying that for in case it is a wound.

I've also read about the dreaded DGD and parasites... will be very sad to lose him...hoping it's just a wound that can heal and not something that will kill him in days as per the many threads I've now seen.

Ok. The salt+Malifix seems to work as the wound looked better last night. I then did a big WC (75%) and only added Melafix. This morning it looked red again, so I re-added the salt.

He is very active (doesn't like the 5G size) and eating well. So it does look like it is a wound and not DGD.

Once healed we'll split the two DG into different tanks.
