Hi... I came home from work tonight and one of my 8 inch red bellies has a squarish mark on his chin?? It isn't a bite or anything. One of the big plants was up rooted floating on top I was thinking maybe he just got spooked today and hit his head on the glass? It wouldn't be an infection or some diese would it? My guess would be hitting the glass. But just making sure
Thanks guys

Yup. You answered your own question. Just add a little aquarium salt to be safe.

Nothing to be worried about. Ocasionally your P will get spooked and make a Mad dash across your tank without regard of bumping of scraping against something. There shouldnt be any problems as long as you take good care of your water :

My 5 inch red belly has the same thing, except it looks white, which is making me worried about the possibility of it being infected... I already added some aquarium salt... what else can I do? Also, when should I be worried if it's still there? He's a great fish and i dont want him dying on me.. Thanks a lot guys.

I wouldn't worry too much, Melafix is a good treatment that you could try, but I seriously doubt that any long term harm will come to your fish.
The fact that it is white suggests that it might br a fungus, so I would keep a close eye on the situation, and pics would be helpful for a more definate identification of the problem.

Well, the quality hasn't improved, but I think it's clearer this way.

And really don't know what it is, though. Thank god I never had any sick fish yet *knock, knock*
Sorry, wish I could help you out...
