I agree. Also get a picture for us to see how serious it is and maybe we can calm you down a bit.

For open wounds you want an anti bacterial like Tetracycline or Erythromaycin, aquarium salt and either Stress Coat or Kordon's Fish Protector. I have found that Kordon's Fish Protector does wonders for helping open wounds close up so I really suggest getting it if you can.

A pic would help us make sure it isn't something like Hole-in-the-head disease which would require different meds. It is possible your pleco took a chunk out of her like mentioned earlier. Sometimes they just get hungry...

she is never at the bottom of the tank so i don't think he did it but who knows? i have a pic but it is terrible quality. i will post it in a minute. the pic does not describe the harshness of the cut. it looks like senshi's head in darkmoons avatar except skinnier but it is that long. as i said it is a cut thing not like a deep wound.

see it right by her eye and her fins are looking like something bit them. the only thing that is different about her personality is that she is keeping her fins clamped.

Well it's probably not hole-in-the-head because that's usually lots of little lesions that progressively get larger, but I wouldn't rule out ulcers either. Antibacterials and qt are the way to go either way.
