    The traces of ammonia and nitrite may be irritating the fish, have you seen any of them flashing?

    Looks to me like the start of an ulcer. Could be wrong. Could be start of a tumer.
    But more likely ulcer. Can t tell properly from photo. Have you got a qt system mate.
    If so it needs topical treating. And then 0.3 salt. And after a couple of days up it to 0.6. With 23c heat.

    Also give it a scrape when you net it
    And bowl it.

    What i quoted earlier was if you have a qt.
    What is said if you had a qt that aids with recovery . It speeds things up.
    In your case seeing you dont have a qt.
    You need to clean the infected area
    I use this for ulcers.

    Kusuri 8-Piece Topical Treatment Kit for Koi Pond Fish

    Clean the wound
    Then anti bac it.

    Then seal it using the powder
    Then use the top coat sealer.
    Then in your case put back in the pond.
