Could he have hit it on rock, driftwood, or the filter?

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

no internal or hob filter.i use a sump.plus the in pipe has a shield to protect againt the baby guppies from getting suck in.the gask is quiet big he'd have to hit the wood really hard on a pointed edge to get that wound.the rocks and gravel are the rounded type.don't think it is ricks.plus i don't have any deco mostly plants. i think someone tried to murder him.

Sounds like a mystery novel. Hows the little guy doing? What kind of fish are in there with him?
