    That certainly looks quite nasty and if it were mine would be getting treated. If it's not something you want to attempt, then you will have to call someone in. Maybe let us know where abouts you are situated and someone might then be able to advise.

    Yes, as Gary says - that needs treating - and most important your water parameters need to be spot on to promote good healing. Have you done any water tests, do you have a test kit? If not something like this would be a good starting point; NT Lab 200 Multi Test Kit, or similar, 25 well spent.

    As said above you need to find the cause.
    Looks like an Ulser and not too hard to treat if your handy.
    Needs sedating , dead scales removed, then clean the wound with an antibac then sealing.

    Sounds hard to do but isnt,you can buy a treatment kit which has everything in it.

    One like this would be fine.

    Thank you guys for everything, been amazing and he recovered within 3 days. I changed the pond water more than usual maybe 30% rather than 10% and he healed himself with no scars ����
