So. Due to covid 19, I have had to take one of the classroom fish home with me. I have experience with multiple kinds of fish from working 3 years as an aquatic specialist at a pet store, but it's been awhile. So the patient is a 2-3 yr old butterfly koI ( I know, shouldn't be in a tank, I'm not the one who bought him and I'm constantly asking for them to relocate him so the best I can do is keep his water quality up like crazy). It seems like at the base of his tail has a small growth. He is the only fish in his tank so no contamination of any sort. He has been a little stressed since we had to take him to our house. But like I said, I've been keeping his water quality super clean and taking all precautions I can.
I think it's a fungus. However my other friend thinks it may be a scale abscess. I've started a small dose of pimafix until I'm for sure and upping the salt a little . But has anyone seen this?

what size tank is that poor koI in? imo it looks like he has some ammonia poisoning from those faint red lines starting to show in his fins. would you know the water parameters from the school tank he was in and what are the parameters of the tank he is in now?
