I noticed that one of my dispar anthias has some sort of injury on its side. It looks similar to a bruise... Any help is appreciated.

Hmm. My guess is that your fish got stung by a coral or that it has a parasite or disease. As long as none of your fish are fighting, I wouldn't suspect a bruise or injury of that sort.

After inspecting the fish in person, it appears to be a disease or parasite. It is a volcano-shaped region, with the fish's body protruding a few millimeters with a crater in the center. The fish is swimming okay, but is breathing heavily in comparison to the other fish. I don't have a suggestion as to what disease or parasite...
anyone

I suggest to QT it...

It still looks fine to me, slightly worse than yesterday. I'll wait a day or so deciding if I should set up at QT

I'm sorry about your Anthias, they are really pretty. I hope it makes a recovery from this.

Just an update lol... The anthias worsened, it looked as if a big crater formed in it and then it must have died. I'm assuming it was a parasite.

here is what i think it is i believe from just seeing the photo that it a combination of two things one a parasite and two the scales around the infection fell off making it worse my suggestion they sell a product that kills any parasite on fish or in the water its at petco its like 5 bucks and it kills everything parasitic id use that two id also try to quarintine the anthias they are very hardy and make excellent recoveries so expect the best

It died approximately 7 months ago, but thanks. Also most products that I am aware of are not reef friendly so It would have posed an issue.
