Question Chromis with Orange / Brown spot

Is this something to worry about?

It is the Chromis in the middle of the picture, and the spot is near its tail, but still on the body. Best pic I could get - my Chromis are shy.

May be a parasite, I had a chromis that had some kind of flesh eating parasite ate a hole right thru him... it started with a small spot, then begin to get bigger till he looked like he was bitten... never was able to diagnose the issue
