So I picked up a manueli for s good price at the lfs. The fish was on the top shelf so I couldn't see it from the top down. When I got it home I acclimated it to the tank, shut the light off, and left alone until this afternoon when I couldn't resist taking a look at him. I noticed the what appeared to be hith? At the store I didn't notice it but could the stress of moving it again cause it to flame up or something? The store employee said that the guy that brought it in only fed it live feeders. Does this look like hith? What besides improving the diet and good water quality can I do to help this fish? Thanks

Some people have told me it looks like wound and other hith. Could anyone give me a 100% diagnosis so I can treat accordingly. So far I have been using salt and Melafix while doing 10% water changes daily. Please and thank you.
Oh and it hasn't gotten worse or any better but I've had it less than a week.

Looks like HITH to me but I have virtually zero experience with it.

So the salt water change Melafix temp bump hasn't helped. I dosed it with api general cure and gave the second dose yesterday. I don't know if it will help or not.
