Pasfur has enough experience I think he can handle it, but this is not a treatment method I would commonly suggest to just anyone.
Sorry to everyone who wishes for me to post the details here. All I will say here is that this appears to be a bacterial infection with a heavy fungal growth as a secondary infection, and was likely caused by a superficial wound obtained from a scrape on a rock or something of that nature.
Nothing illegal, banned med???, I hope. I dont think it is the the infection from wound received from scrape on the rock. Well, I havent come across fish stupid enough to cause such on its own but have seen nemerous injuries from surgeon fish. And I dont think it's that either. Although pic is blur, it does not appeared to have secondary fungal infection yet.
There is another possibility as far as how fish were caught. Something most rule out???
Anyway, good luck with treatment and hope Majestic fully recover very soon.
