Fungus on Blue Tang?

I've had this little guy since mid december and he started getting HLLE in the QT so after about 2 weeks there I moved him to the better conditions in the DT. He's been doing fine and is still eating. All other inhabitants are fine as well. However this morning just as I was feeding I noticed this "white" patch on him. Any ideas? Thanks Steve

Looks like a scrape to me. If it was fungal it would be white and cottony. White tufts sticking out

Thanks Mike. I wasn't sure but he does sleep in the tiniest of spaces in the LR so I think that is bang on. The first few times I couldn't find him then I watched to see where he was going. I'd have a hard time sticking my pinky finger in that spot.
