Question Fish caught against siphon tube

Hello!

During the aquarium cleaning today one of my goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image (5-6 inch ) got caught against the siphon. he was able to get off of it. But in so doing some of his scales came off. Some white muscle is showing but no red. He is acting completely normal and is just as active as always. I put in a little more prime than normal and put in some para guard just to be safe.

Can you think of anything else I can do to assist in his recovery? I had just turned away to turn on the tv and came back. It was SO quick. But he seems fine.

I appreciate any tips/advice.

Sincerely,

Tonya

Agreed with above, he will recover well, just be sure to keep his water clean.
