Oh no! Kissing gourami troubles

Today I bought a pink kissing gourami and when i put it in my fishtank I turned the light on to see him better and his head seems to be "bruised" looking. Between his eyes and a little above, is a brownish color. Do you think he was bullied by other tank mates at the pet store? Please help asap. I do not want to bring him back to the store because he is very happy and has settled quite nicely.

Welcome to the forum, Pearl.

What size is your tank? What are your water parameters? Any pictures? Kissing gouramis will grow to a max size of 12 inches or more. Any tank than a 55 gallons will easily be outgrowed.

its possible it was a bruise. Give him time to settle in and keep a close eye on his behavior and the physical appearance. Its possible that it will go away.
