i just noticed this morning that my newly acquired green terror has a white bump in between its eyes, with a small pin hole wound. the injury was probably sustained in the night, and was self inflicted due to a sudden movement into my driftwood. the pin hole wound is not serious, but the bump is a little alarming. just wondering what is the most beneficial practice to follow for this specific injury?

salt perhaps? if so how much?

Thanks :)

after the first initial day the bump dispersed and 2 larger wounds formed in its place. i took action at that point, i dosed 1tbs of salt for every 5 gallon of water. i am also in the process of gradually making my way to 86F. this morning the wounds looked much cleaner, but it will be a long way to recovery.

just a quick update,

he got a lot worse before he got better, but yes, he is much better now!

salt and heat seems to always be the key when i have health issues with my fish.

I'm glad that he is better now, he's such a nice looking GT! Probably the stress from being moved from Alex's to my place & then to your place in less than a week left his immune system weakened. Can't wait to see some pics of your completed set up!
