    It doesn't sound like anything to worry about to be honest. If you are able to put a photo up just to be sure but I wouldn't worry too much.

    Was it a successful spawn???

    It's difficult to see on the photo but it looks like it may be some damage caused from fighting. Just keep an eye on it but it doesn't look like anything serious at all.

    Is that not maybe a wound from the mating "kiss"? because the male does do some damage to the mouth when they lock.
