Sign of HITH. Internal parasites and nutrient deficiency. Metronidazole should be used for treatment.

Should I continue to medicate what I bought?

I do not believe that it is "hole in the head". I looks more like a bacterial infection. Hole in the head, in my past experiences, has been exemplified by much smaller "pin prick" type holes which grow to larger "divots".

I would use a gram-negative antibiotic. I usually do not like to use chemicals to dose fish, but rather a natural solution. I would probably try PimaFix first. Remember to remove all carbon filtration and dose according to bottle instructions. Keep us informed.

Wildboit, you mentioned you saw white stringy poo. This is a sign of the presence of intestinal parasites. Metronidazole works fine and will not kill the fish at all.

Ok well last night was the last dose I will be giving my fish and it seems to be better. Tomorrow I'll be changing the water 25% of it
