I'm not sure if this is hith.. The mark by his eye was caused when the pet store guy tried to get him in the net. It's healed but still a mark there. I noticed these spots on his back about a week ago

Looks like HITH. What are the nitrate readings (using a liquid test)?

Did this appear over night?

I haven't tested the water this week but last time I checked it was perfect. It did appear overnight

I know he cut his belly on a sharp edge of a rock about that same time but that's already healed up completely

the crater by the eyes may had been noticeable after netting the fish but
it may not be an injury.. and injury will not have crater like that... plus
those small craters at the head is also sign of HITH..

sorry for sounding like rude... but people here do not accept the "perfect" water.
we need to know the exact value of nitrite=? nitrate=? pH=? temp=?

by the way, your fish is very beautiful... it will be shame if the wound deteriorate.

The mark by his eye was a bloody gash and the cut on his belly has already healed completely. Now there is only that one spot on his back.

with this picture, there are already 3 new HITH craters..
the crater by the eye is definitely not an injury.
as you have said, your fish incurred an injury at the belly,
and i could not see any trace of it... that is how an injury healed.

I just checked the water conditions and nitrates and ammonia or at 0. I do 50 percent water changes every week and running a marineland c-360

nitrates and ammonia @zero level is very suspicious.
either you make a wrong testing or you had lost the cycle.
nitrite and ammonia could be zero but not the nitrate.

if you believe the crater by the eyes is not HITH, there is no point
of asking what is it here. if you will notice, Rocksor and I have same
opinion... i just hope other would chime in and give different evaluation.
