Mouth Rot or Injury on female Platy?


Recommended Posts

Hi all - I recently got back from 2 weeks away, we had a house sitter feeding the fish tanks at least 1x a day. After cleaning the tanks, I noticed the next morning that one of my most active/hyper eaters was absent. I found her hiding, and netted her out into my holding/hospital tank. I don't think she's eaten in awhile as she's lethargic, and shows no interest in food. I added 1 tablespoon of salt to the 10g holding tank, and snapped these pics. I looks like she's missing the part of the top of her mouth, but I couldn't see any white fuzzy stuff. 

Would it be worth running a course of Maracyn? From my initial research it seems doubtful this will grow back. Other fish in the tank seem just fine.

Thanks @Colu - hopefully these are a little better: 





It could be mouth rot I couldn't rule out an injury I would follow up with maracyn just in case there's a bacterial component
