Flowerhorn Emergency

    can someone tell me what is going on with my flowerhorn!? I’ve had him around a year and he’s always been in a bare 75g tank, proper filtration and weekly water changes. He has a large blue/purple bruise looking section on his kok and today I found the area next to his eye that looks injured. Hate to think this but could it be hole in head?

    That's one beautiful Flowerhorn!
    It sure looks like it could be HITH. Seachem makes products to treat this, both internally (Metronidazole with Focus & Garlic Guard) as well as in the water column (Aquazole). Wait for responses from other experts though, I haven't a lot of experience with this disease. It could be an injury, considering the lesions are in close proximity to each other.
    What are your water parameters? If they're not perfect, the FIRST thing you should do is a big water change.
