Not sure what is wrong with it. It isn't ich. There aren't any spots I also treated it for ich cause I thought it might be it anyway but it didn't help. It's tail wore away to pretty much nothing now. It has a pretty good size spot on its side that is almost like dead skin looking, its just rough looking and kind of pale, the spot that is. I thought maybe one of my other fish had went after it or something at first but I haven't seen anyone even around it. It eats normal and everything. Not sure what to do. Any help would be great.

Sounds like it got beat up. At the very least, I'd isolate it in a breeder net. Optimally I'd move it to an established quarantine tank set a bit warmer than your main tank and with salt added.

I had a group of tiger barbs (9) a while back in a tank with kribensis, gouramis, and plecos. One got beat up when the kribs were spawning (they like their space), so I moved him to a more docile tank with guppies, tetras, and cories while his wounds healed.

I will just have to try to isolate him. My other tank has chiclids and they are a pretty good size and he is pretty small still so I am sure that would be worse. Thanks for the reply
