    I have seen this sort of thing in the past. I do not know enough to give any advice. In some instances on goldfish, it appeared to be an odd growth of tissue. Unsightly, but the goldfish lived for many years with it. On another occasion, I saw it on a koi and had the impression there had been an injury at the spot. Over time, it simply went away, leaving a discolored scale at the location.

    It would be good if someone more knowledgeable could comment.

    I can't tell from the photo, need a closer pic. Is it a growth or a break in the skin?
