Ughhh. Correct these are the three. Someone told me that it isn’t an ulcer but I totally disagreed. So reason why I wanted other people’s opinions.
Yes they are in a stock tank and yes they are getting injections. Keeping fingers crossed
Yes these are the three
@Jaynie can you take a better picture? Maybe closer, with better lighting. Is there any redness? Is it just this one fish with this? What is going on with the other 2?What else did they think it was? I mean, maybe something took a bite out of it but that seems less likely given the issues you're having.
Hey yes all 3 fish have the same thing. My friend doesn’t really know to much about fish this is not his area. He researched and he came up with ulcers and baytril injections would solve the problem. We are 4 shots into treatment with only 2 left to do and they don’t seem any better. Just starting to get concerned more. Maybe we just need time to let the antibiotics work. I don’t know. 23 years of fish keeping and I have ever felt with an issue like this. No it isn’t predictors either. I don’t have any problems with that thank god. I will try to get a better picture tonight when we do their shots again.@Jaynie can you take a better picture? Maybe closer, with better lighting. Is there any redness?

I had asked about predators, as well, because except for an ulcer, I can’t think of anything else it could be, either. Predators can take nice chunks out of a fish — they don’t always eat them on the spot.
What does your vet friend think it is? Do you think he/she would do a scrape and scope for you? Or at least do it for one of the other fish in the pond. With antibiotics already on board, it may or not be helpful, but it might if there is some parasite involved.
Thank you so much. Everyone is doing great. Took some time for healing but they are all looking better and better everyday. Took this picture a little while ago of them
