Him and another dg are the newest in my 40b, other fish are about 20 black neon tetras, have had them for about a week. I moved him to a 10 gallon yesterday when I noticed it and treated him with api melafix. Wound looks almost fuzzy this morning, thinking maybe I should have got fungal  instead. Having a hard time getting a good picture.

That looks like the start of Dwarf gourami lridovirus virus but it could be bacterial infection with the start of secondary fungal infection what I would do is treat with kanaplex in food and ick x in the water column as ick x is  an effective treatment for fungal infection and kanaplex is a broad spectrum antibiotic treatment that will cover all bases

I sorry to hear they didn't make it the virus can hang around for a long so I would recommend not getting any more  gourami's unless you break down your tank and disinfect all your tank and equipment and bin your plants and substrate
