Open wound on a violet gobi

I noticed a wound on one of my gobis today, near his tail. It's a little swollen, and is showing a bit of blood. There's also a small red spot near his gills on the other side.



I know that's a blurry pic, it's all I could get with the wife's camera phone though. I'm assuming I just need to stick him in my hospital tank with some melafix, right?

Right. Melafix should do the job.:) Maintain cleanliness as this will speed up the healing of its wounds.

Excellent information. Not to worry. Maintain your water clean and treat with Melafix so the wounds should heal. Monitor the fish closely to prevent appearance of fungus.
