Danio with strange wound/bruise

Recommended Posts

I've been keeping danios nearly 10 years and I've never seen anything like this. One of my pearls has got a big bloody looking bruise/welt on the wrist of his tail. 

It's swollen and the scales are raised around the edges of the sore spot. He's having a little trouble swimming and his tail kinda droops down when he stops. 

He's still eating and trying to keep up with the other fish but he seems slower today. I don't think he'll last much longer if he doesn't start getting better right away. 

Is this a possible symptom of some kind of disease? or has he been attacked or had an unfortunate scrape?

He's in with a 5 zebra danios and 3 other pearl danios and three Siamese algae eaters.

My tank is well looked after with regular water changes and testing. 

I've attached some pictures of the fish in question. APOLOGIES for the bad quality of the photos it's the best I could do.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can give
