it looked like a new cut like while I was feeding him which was after the water change so maybe he scraped it on something. but on the parasite guard box one of the symptoms it says is wounds on their body

i actually texted somebody on the forum and she told me that she going to text Sakura and ask what it can be. I am not sure at all. It important though that it don't get worse. If it get worse then obviously something is wrong and it not just a scratch. So i think for now it really good sign that he is eating and a little active, and his poo normal color. How is his bloating?

His bloat looks a lot better, pretty much gone now, it's just his inactiveness and that cut I'm worried about, and thanks for all the help

Sorry i just came home. I got and answer from the girl who text Sakure. This was the answer. I never heard about it before. This is the answer and recommendations:

I'm thinking it could be a result of the medications. From what I've read, Tetra Parasite Guard has a few ingredients that are not fish friendly. I think someone once said diflubenzeron was even used in lawn fertilizer. If the dose was just a little off, it's possible the medications burned him. Since the poop has returned to a normal color, I would recommend leaving him in epsom salts for another week to make sure the system is clear and adding a product like API Stress Coat or Kordon Fish Protector to encourage the slime coat. That should help protect the red sore from infection. I know the Tetra meds are readily available at places like Wal-Mart but they're not the best. If possible, try to get people to use API General Cure instead.

The fish's appetite may have gone off because some medications dull the sense of smell and taste. Hopefully once he's out of the meds, he'll get his full appetite back because with internal parasites, it's always important that they eat so they can poo the parasites out.

The API thing says it dechlorinates water, should I still use the water conditioner I have along with the API or just use the API?
