I can see it in the first photo. Is it still there does it look like a stick poking out of the fish, very hard to tell.

Do you have Aquarium salt on hand?

That does look like an anchor worm to me.  Which country do you live in?  We may be able to find you some treatments that ship to your area, if what we need isn’t available locally.

 

I agree with Koko that salt and tweezers are the first thing to try.  Here are good instructions for it, I’d bring the tank up to .3% salt:

 

Just remember to use rock salt or pickling salt, NO ADDITIVES.
