I just bought an archer fish a week ago and I'm keeping it in brackish condition. However, I noticed what seemed like an injury on the archer and did not take it seriously. After a few days later, the archer seems to be developing more sores in other areas and the initial sore did not heal. I tried to find anything sharp that could cut the archer but found none in my tank and I think this is some sort of disease. Would antibiotics help?

It's probably best to consult your LFS and see what product they recommend. I don't think it would do any harm to put a samll dose of treatment in and see what happens. Good Luck

NEVER add medication of any form unless your not 100% sure that it will help/cure your fish. I agree with consulting your LFS, try to describe the sores a bit more and the fishes behaviour so we can try to help you out best. Oh and pictures would be even better if you can get them!
