i noticed a trout swimming near the surface with a bright red mark near the gills i dont know if it has been attacked by bigger fish or some sort of disease
i have given it a salt bath and isolated it in a floating tank, it is struggling floating on its side sometimes i am not expecting it to last to long

Hard to see on this low quality pictures, but it looks to me like an attack.

Check the pH in your system, this can also cause fin rot.
